As an employer you have a responsibility and legal obligation to hold certain information about your employees, including ensuring your new employees have the right to work in the UK, if not you could face a substantial fine or discrimination claim.
It is important to carry out employment checks as unfortunately some employees do not tell the whole truth on their CV’s, and it is important to ensure information given is accurate to protect your business.
All new employees take time to settle into a new role and an induction process can help an employee to add value to your business quicker and more effectively.
It is important to include a probation period within your contracts of employment and ensure you have a process in place to monitor and deal with any initial problems. Use this time to ensure you have the right person in place before it affects your business negatively. A probation period can also be used for confirming expectations and assessing any learning / training needs.
