Staff roles with Pink Ladies

As Pink Ladies are only just started up, I am going to start the service to the public on my own. This is due to the money which I have left to spend on staffing costs and as I am starting up I will not have many customers due to people still hearing about me. This means I may have little cleaning jobs to start with which mean I will not need another member of staff to help me. I would also need separate equipment which I cannot afford so staff can be doing different jobs. Until I can afford this I will be working on my own. If in the future I will need staff when I expand I will need staff to go and do different cleaning jobs at different places. I will need staff to do paperwork as the service will be bigger and Pink Ladies will have more customers. They will be a bigger demand for cleaning so with the profit I will able to afford staff and buy more equipment.

If Pink Ladies expand in the future, staff will be needed. This means I need to consider employment laws as it may affect Pink Ladies. These included:

  • Minimum wage- A worker has to pay a certain amount depending on their age. This means I have to pay at least this wage when having staff:

Adults who are 21 or over- £5.52

18-21 years old- £4.60

16-18 years old- £3.40

This means when employee staff for Pink Ladies I will to give at least minimum wage and this may affect how much I charge for my service.
