The Isle of Man is a self-governing British Crown Dependency in the Irish Sea between the United Kingdom and Ireland. Queen Elizabeth II, the head of state, bears the title Lord of Mann and is represented by a Lieutenant Governor. The United Kingdom is in charge of the island's military defense.
Since before 6500 BC, humans have resided on the island. Irish missionaries following St. Patrick's teachings started populating the island in the 5th century AD, and the Manx language, a branch of the Goidelic languages, arose. King Edwin of Northumbria captured the Isle of Man, as well as much of Mercia, in 627. The thalassocratic Kingdom of the Isles, which comprised the Isle of Man, was created in the 9th century by Norsemen. Between 1099 and 1103, Magnus III, King of Norway from 1093 to 1103, ruled as King of Mann and the Isles.
Under the Treaty of Perth, King Magnus VI of Norway transferred his suzerainty over Mann to King Alexander III of Scotland in 1266. Following a period of alternating sovereignty by the Kings of Scotland and England, the island was transferred to the English Crown's feudal lordship in 1399. The lordship was restored to the British Crown in 1765, although the island did not become a part of the Kingdom of Great Britain in the 18th century, nor of its successors, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the current United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It has always maintained its internal autonomy. The Isle of Man Parliament, Tynwald, became the world's first national legislative body to grant women the right to vote in a general election in 1881, however this excluded married women.
The Mann economy benefits from its role as a tax haven and offshore financial center. Insurance and online gambling each account for 17% of GNP, with information and communications technology and banking accounting for 9% each. The Mann Government has outlined a policy that includes a "whole-island approach" to addressing the major issues of money laundering, financial crime, and terrorist funding. The Isle of Man is famous across the world for the TT Motorcycle Races and the Manx Cat, a breed with short or no tails. UNESCO designated the Isle of Man as a biosphere reserve in 2016.
The contract or written declaration should specify the employee's statutory rights with regard to the notice he or she is required to give and is entitled to receive. Once notice of redundancy is issued, employees are also entitled to reasonably paid time off to hunt for work or arrange for training.
Where the Tribunal does not make an order for reemployment following a finding of unjust dismissal, it makes an award of compensation calculated as follows: a basic award of one week's gross salary, limited at £540 per week, for each completed year of continuous employment up to the calculation date.
The maximum number of years to be considered is 26. A compensating award may be made to the employee based on the employee's loss, including any reasonable expenses spent as a result of the dismissal and any other benefits, including pensions, that could reasonably have been expected but for the dismissal. The award cannot exceed £56,000, save in circumstances involving health and safety or whistleblowing, or in cases where an employer refuses to comply with a Tribunal decision of reemployment. Additionally, the Tribunal may award compensation for emotional distress, up to a fixed maximum of £5,000, if the Tribunal believes it is just and equitable.
The statutory entitlement to notice, which an employee is both required to give and entitled to receive, should be included in the contract or written declaration. The following is the notice period that the employer must provide.
The notice period is one week if the employment duration is shorter than two years. If you have been employed for more than two years but less than twelve, the notice period is one week for each year of continuous employment. The notice period is 12 weeks if the employment period is longer than 12 years.
The employee must offer the following notice period. The notice period is one week if the employment duration is shorter than two years. If you have been employed for more than 2 years but less than 4 years, you will be given one week's notice for each year of continuous employment. If you've been employed for more than four years, you'll be given a four-week notice period.
Generally, the probationary period lasts between three and six months.
Employees who have worked for the same employer for two years or more are entitled to a statutory redundancy payment if they are made redundant. A redundancy payment is equal to one week's gross pay, up to a maximum of £540 per week, for each completed year of continuous employment up to the calculation date. A maximum of 26 years may be considered, and the maximum statutory payment is £14,040.
If a contractual redundancy payment exceeds the statutory maximum, the contractual payment takes precedence. Once notice of redundancy is given, employees are entitled to reasonable paid time off to look for work or arrange for training. Where the Tribunal does not make an order for reemployment following a finding of unfair dismissal, it makes an award of compensation calculated as follows: a basic award of one week's gross pay capped at £540 per week for each completed year of continuous employment of the employee until to the calculation date.
The maximum number of years to be considered is 26. A compensatory award is due based on the employee's loss and may include any reasonable expenses incurred as a result of the dismissal, as well as any pensions that might have been reasonably expected. The award cannot exceed £56,000, except in cases involving health and safety or whistleblowing, or in cases where an employer refuses to comply with a Tribunal order of reemployment. If an injury to feelings was established and the Tribunal finds it just and equitable, an award of up to £5,000 is appropriate.
Although there is no legislation defining working hours for other employees, an employer must consider the health and safety implications of requesting employees to work longer hours. When the working day exceeds six hours, all employees are entitled to a minimum 20-minute break.
Civil servants (other than those without fixed conditioned hours) are eligible for overtime pay in accordance with the following provisions for hours worked at management's request that exceed their conditioned hours.
Overtime work should generally be reserved for periods of extreme work pressure and only at the direction of management. It should be completed Monday through Friday, if possible, and only on weekends as a last resort.
Overtime compensation is calculated on the basis of the civil servant's pay and allowances (excluding allowances in lieu of overtime or for night duty, for shift disruption, for housing, clothing, lodging, travel, and subsistence, or similar out-of-pocket expenses).
A worker's hourly rate of pay must not be less than the appropriate rate of the minimum wage (which is subject to annual review). An employee whose age is older than the compulsory school age but younger than 18 years old ought to be paid £6.15 an hour. If the employee is over 18 years and does not work in development, the hourly rate is at least £8.25. An employee older than 18 years and works in development should be paid at least £7.30 per hour.
Mandatory benefits postulated by law include a probationary period, pay on annual leaves, public holidays, sick leaves, maternity leave, paternity leave, and overtime pay. Statutory benefits also include social security benefits.
Companies in the Isle of Man are not imposed a corporate tax rate.
Taxable persons in the Isle of Man are imposed a personal income tax rate within the range of 10 percent to 20 percent. The actual percentage depends on the income bracket the taxable person belongs to.

To begin, people of the United Kingdom and other EEA (European Economic Area) states are permitted to enter the Isle of Man and remain for as long as they choose. However, if you want to work there, you will need a work visa. It should be noted that a Schengen visa is not valid. The United Kingdom is a signatory to the Schengen Area Agreement, although the Isle of Man is not. As a consequence, if you do not match the conditions for a visa exemption, you must get a visa in order to visit the Isle. You may apply at a UK embassy or online - the option is yours.
You don't have to worry about language problems in the Isle of Man. English is the predominant language spoken by the residents. However, you may sometimes hear Manx Gaelic, which is a combination of Old Irish and Irish-Scottish Gaelic. English is more than enough for getting about.
