Hours Of Business Although my business is generalised as a garage it is not a ordinary garage that just fixes broken cars, this is only one service that my business will offer.

This will give all workers including myself an average of 40 hours a week.
Discrimination Act A induction is a period of training for workers who are new to a business. In an induction they find out about the business. Most importantly they find out exactly how they need to do their job properly. My business will give inductions to ensure that are workers know what they will have to do, where they will have to go when they get in to work, ensure they know the health and safety regulations and who to speak to if something goes wrong.
