Employing part-time workers

Introduction

Employing part-time workers can be an efficient way to keep costs down in areas where you don't need full-time cover.

It can also mean that you are able to attract a wide range of people to fill vacancies and build in flexibility so that you can respond to changes in demand and develop your business.

This guide will explain the different types of part-time work, the statutory rights of part-time workers and ways in which your business could benefit from recruiting part-time staff and/or allowing existing full-time staff to change to part-time working.
