Twitter Q&A with the NDNA

Last week, we held our first question & answer (Q&A) session across our Twitter page in conjunction with the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA).

For many nursery owners, ever changing HR legislation can be a minefield. Being able to speak to experts quickly and easily can be a big help, which is why we have begun to run Q&A’s through our social channels.

Our Employment Law expert, Mark Nolan hosted the hour long session and answered any questions that were submitted.

Below are some of the most popular questions that were asked throughout the hour:

1. Will the same legal penalties apply for the National Living Wage as the National Minimum Wage if employers don’t comply?
