I have tried to find out if there is a legal requirement for a minimum number of staff to be on site for safety reasons.I.E. If ther ewas only 1 member of staff/employee working, and that person had an accident or heart attack or fell ill etc, then no-one would know about it until the staff came in the next day.Is it therefore a legal requirement that at least 2 members of staff should be at work?.If so,please give me a link to the relevant law.many thanks
do we need to raise the minimum wage to match inflation? do we need the introduction of a living wage? opinions welcome A 'living wage' is the term used to describe how much someone needs to earn per hour to afford the basic essentials in life, not luxuries, essentials. The campaign for a living wage is growing in strength with Labour now throwing its support behind the idea and London mayor Boris Johnson saying it has his wholehearted support. The recommended living wage was recently set at £8.55 an hour in London and £7.45 an hour for the rest of the UK. The minimum wage is £6.19. Please sign the petition in favour of raising the national minimum wage to match the living wage needed for people to be able to support themselves. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41273
