So I'm after everyone's views on this as there is next to no guidance that I can find online.
My 15 year old sister in law has just got her 1st job in a burger van.
It's seasonal work, so won't be for too long.
The lady she works for has decided that she doesn't want to have to deal with payroll of any kind, so is getting all of the workers to invoice her for work done, most of them school age.
As it is still school term (although nobody seems to be going) my sister in law would only legally be able to work 12 hours a week, but over the last week she has worked 45, not really had the breaks she should have.
She doesn't seem to mind as she likes the fact she now is getting a decent amount of money. But none of it sits right with me.
I've never really had to deal with payroll, so am a bit unfamiliar with employment law, only really know what I learnt working as a restaurant manager, so I'm not too sure if any of this seems OK, or if it all seems a bit off?
If she doesn't need to be employed, will the usual S/A rules apply to her regardless of her age? Just no NI to pay I assume?
And also would she then be able to work however many hours she would want to? Or would this be limited as if she was employed?
Like I said, can't really find any guidance online, only on employment, so would be extremely grateful for everyone's views.
