Are your staff old enough to serve alcohol?

If you employ young people in your hospitality business, pub or restaurant, you’ll want to read this excellent brief article from the The Publican’s Morning Advertiser called the Legal guide: Employing young people.

It outlines how many hours under-18s can work and on which days, what sort of wage is suitable for 16-17 year olds, and when and where the youngsters can handle alcohol.

This article makes a great follow-up to the Institute of Hospitality’s recent IoH Webinar on what employers can and can’t do with employees under the age of 18! Find an active link to the webinar in the Institute’s Online Catalogue by simply searching the word ‘webinar’. You will be able to access the active link to the webinar and listen to it at your leisure!
