Instructions:

Hiba has recently started a business called ‘Spotless Limited’, providing a cleaning service for local businesses. Hiba does not have the time or the expertise to deal with employment matters and has come to you for advice.
Hiba would like full legal advice on all on the following issues:
1) Hiba needs to draft a contract for prospective employees to sign. Hiba does not have much time and also wants to minimise her costs at this early stage, whilst she is setting up her business. Hiba cannot afford to be generous with her benefits i.e. employees will only receive their statutory rights and/or benefits. Hiba wants to know if she can have verbal contracts with her prospective employees and what key information needs to be given to them.
2) Hiba has already hired Joe Jackson. He is 25 years old and has been working 5 days a week between the hours of 8am – 4pm. Joe has one hour unpaid lunch every day. However James does not wish to take lunch and would much rather get paid for the extra hour which he works. He would also like to work 7 days a week, every week, as he has huge financial commitments. In principle Hiba does not have a problem with this. Is this possible?
3) Hiba needs to employ two additional members of staff. Hiba does not want to employ any females. Having invested a lot of time and effort into starting up her business, she does not want to be in a position where she is paying for maternity leave or having to accommodate flexible school runs etc. Having had children several years ago, she only knows too well the challenges of being a working mum. How can she do this?
4) Hiba also knows from friends who have started their own businesses that staff discipline is important and if not done properly can expose the employer to litigation. Hiba would like to get some disciplinary procedures in place in order to avoid this in the future. What would you advise?
5) Finally Hiba would like to know the difference between wrongful dismissal and unfair dismissal? She has heard these terms many times but does not actually understand them.
What do I need to do to pass? (Threshold Expectations from UIF)
• Identify the relevant legal issues arising from the scenario and apply relevant legislation and case law to produce sound legal advice;
• Write in a clear, structured and grammatically correct manner and reference your sources in accordance with OSCOLA.
