PA Employer Forms and Templates

Certain records must be kept when managing employees and good record keeping is part of being a good employer. Some examples you can print or download are listed and if you are using an Independent Support Organisation or a payroll service they will also have templates, or documents you can make your own, for the purpose of good record keeping. You will find a copy of the following documents:

  • Starting Out with a Direct Payment Check List
  • Model Contract for PAs (Scottish Government)
  • Direct Payments Advice Sheet
  • Interview Checklist and Example Interview Questions
  • Sample Job Advert
