Hello and welcome to Just Answer, can you tell me how many hours he works in a week and the times that he is likely to work them?
Hello Kim sorry for the delay.
So long as he does not work between the restricted hours of 10 pm -7 am and works no more than 40 hours per week there is no breach of health and safety law concerning young workers.
The money you are paying him is also more than the minimum required for young workers (which is currently £3.53 per hour)
There is therefore nothing wrong with what you are doing at the moment.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would be so kind as to take the time to rate my answer. thank you and all the best.
Hi is there anything further you would like to know about this?
There is no reason whatsoever why you should not write a contract setting this out.
No problem, I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. I am happy to answer any further questions you might have in the future if you would like to request me by name.
Many thanks and all the best for the future and with your enterprise!
