Casual workers

Casual Day Workers

If you use daily casuals:

  • Ensure that for all daily casuals that earn over the ET i.e. £110 in a week, they pay the necessary NI deductions and you as the employer pay the employers’ NI contributions.
  • Pay workers on the basis agreed i.e. daily.

Weekly Casuals

  • Ensure that for all weekly casuals that earn over the ET i.e. £110 in a week, they pay the necessary NI deductions and you as the employer pay the employers’ NI contributions.
  • Pay workers on the basis agreed i.e. weekly.

Length of time casuals used for

  • Monitor how long you use daily/weekly casuals for.
  • If a worker shows to have been working on your site for over 1 week, then all future earnings are classified as normal workers and tax and NI deducted as such.

Parental Benefits - New parents

  • Ensure that you are aware of all workers who are pregnant or expecting a child.
  • Inform these workers about their rights to paid leave, and establish a time at which they are likely to take it.
  • Plan production and cover for the dates at which your workers are likely to be on leave.
  • Calculate the average earnings for these workers for at least 12 weeks before they take their leave.
  • Determine whether the worker is entitled to 90% of their average earnings or the set rate of £123.06 per week.
  • Ensure that female workers are paid 90% of their average earnings for the first 6 weeks of their leave.
  • Ensure that female workers are paid the appropriate amount for the remaining 33 weeks of their leave.
  • Ensure that male workers are paid the appropriate amount for the 2 weeks leave they are entitled to.
  • Investigate the recovery of the parental benefits that the employer is paying, and whether or not it would be entitled to Small Employer’s Relief.
