What legal and best practice aspects should employers be aware of?

Here are some UK employment legislations to consider when implementing a New Starter Personal Details Form:

  • The Data Protection Act 2018: Employers must ensure that any personal data collected from new starters is handled in accordance with data protection regulations. The form should include a privacy notice, explaining how the data will be used and stored, and obtain the candidate's consent to process their data.
  • The Equality Act 2010: Employers must ensure that the form does not infringe on any protected characteristics, such as age, race, gender, or disability, and is non-discriminatory in nature.
  • The National Minimum Wage Act 1998: Employers must ensure that they have accurate information regarding the new starter's age, as this will affect the minimum wage that they are entitled to.
  • The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006: Employers must ensure that they have accurate information regarding the new starter's right to work in the UK, and may need to request additional documentation to confirm this.
  • The Working Time Regulations 1998: Employers must ensure that they have accurate information regarding the new starter's working hours, and any relevant breaks or rest periods that they are entitled to.
  • The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974: Employers may need to collect information about the new starter's health and safety requirements, such as any medical conditions or disabilities that may require reasonable adjustments to be made.
