Why Choose Bluebird Care Gosport
Should I just employ a carer directly?
If you hire someone to carry out care and support for you at home – paid by you personally or with direct payments – you may legally be classed as an employer. This brings with it certain responsibilities, such as, but not limited to:
- Registering as an employer with HMRC
- Carrying out employee checks to ensure they have a legal right to work
- Operating PAYE where applicable to pay their salary
- Adhering to working time regulations and paid holidays
- Providing statutory sick pay
- Taking out employers’ liability insurance
Using a care service provider
