Employers in certain industries often offer an employee a place to stay along with the job, usually because the job can be done for efficiently in the employee lives close by. For example a pub owner may decide to offer his employee a room above the pub where the employee works as a barman.

Difficulties may arise when the employment comes to an end. Getting it right from the beginning will mean that everyone understands their rights and obligations.

In this section we set out what employers need to be aware of in relation to this scenario, which is also referred to as service lettings.
