Using this handbook
Welcome to the PA Employer Handbook
For someone learning about becoming a Personal Assistant (PA) employer this guide is structured to provide the information you need at each stage of the journey.
By choosing your stage, the content will change. The articles you see will be an introduction to what you need to know before progressing, but you can start and finish where you choose. Sections of the book, or the whole book, can be downloaded or printed but care should be taken with a printed copy where information can become out of date, like the Scottish Living Wage or employment law for example.
The PA Employer Handbook is a live resource, meaning people are contributing to its content all the time, and you can contribute too by telling us if you found sections useful or if you think they need improvement.
You can also find support with this guide or any aspect of being an employer. There are organisations who can provide information or support relevant to where you live in Scotland or your stage of exploring being a PA employer, just click the find help page to start.
