Good To Work for: Employing Staff and Working with Volunteers in Small Groups. Starting Points: A Practical Guide, 28.
Even small groups of child care workers can benefit from clear procedures that help ensure fair treatment and create an atmosphere of security in which staff can concentrate on providing the best possible care for young children. This guide provides child care employers, employees, and volunteers in Great Britain with information about their rights and responsibilities. The guide focuses on small groups and on the need to safeguard children when recruiting the people who work with them. The guide discusses good practice and lists the legal requirements for major aspects of employment that are relevant to small groups, including recruitment, contracts, equality of opportunity, payment, health and safety at work, maternity rights, and disciplinary rules and grievance procedures. The guide also has pages of sample forms and documents, including a contract, pay slip, and interviewing forms, that provide employers with practical resources in the workplace. (EV)
