Employment Update for Small Businesses
December 2023

Dear Subscriber

This is just a brief update this month and will be sent to you when I am already on holiday, thanks to the magic of Mail Chimp (I am back on Monday, 11th December). It is just to confirm the increases in the minimum wage recently announced by the Government and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (too soon?)

Also, I am pleased to announce that Lindsey and I will be joined by a new starter in the New Year, and I will introduce her properly to you in next month’s update.

Please contact me if you would like to find out a bit more about any of the subjects raised in this update or if you need any help or advice.

Please forward this email to any of your contacts who might find it of benefit.
