Ethical & t
limber is your ethical alternative to the zero hours contract.
With limber, you can build a network of empowered workers and call on them when the need arises, but rest safe in the knowledge that when you don’t have the hours to give them, they’ll be able to earn elsewhere in the hospitality community.
The limber community is based on trust, acceptance and mutual respect.
Both workers and hirers can rate each other and these ratings are available for the rest of the limber community to see. By holding each other accountable, together, we’re able to create a fair, diverse and open place to work and hire in hospitality.
Workers register with limber by signing up via the worker app.
limber then checks their right to work before verifying their account and allowing them access to the platform.
All limberers receive holiday pay and those who meet the necessary earnings thresholds will be offered a pension on limber.
The app also deals with payroll and will automatically send you (and your accountant) invoices for all your activity on limber.
So, when you hire on limber, you know that the basics have been taken care of allowing you to focus on your business, not paperwork.
limber is fast, efficient and easy to use.
limber will save you time and money recruiting for part time staff, sifting CVs and organising trial shifts.
You can chat with your staff, arrange shifts and manage timesheets all via the mobile app or web platform. Because the limber app takes care of all your paperwork, it also saves you time and money spent on right to work checks, payroll and pension admin.
After each shift, limber will collect a payment consisting of worker wages (including statutory holiday pay), an additional 4% on top of wages to cover employer’s National Insurance and pension contributions, the limber fee (10%), and VAT.
The 10% fee, at minimum wage is just 90p per hour and it covers, access to the app (web and mobile), automated PAYE, access to the limber community and all other paperwork.
