Hi all
Thinking about getting an assistant, my hubby is my assistant at the mo but ties him to the house when he has his free time, he works full time as well as helps me out. Have had loads of enquiries and so have decided am gonna have to bite the bullett and take someone on part time................few questions though!
the lady i have in mind does not have a first aid cert, not sure if I will get her on a funded course so is it wrong to ask her for a contribution towards the cost??
its less than 15 hours a week so can I leave it to her to sort out NI etc??
what about a contract etc? and holiday pay etc...........am really very green as far as this is concerned! Help!!!!

You need to contact the IR regarding pay and holiday pay.

As to the first aid certificate, you could ask for it to be a condition of employment.

When you look into it you may find that it just isn't work the extra pay for the amount of work
