Charities and Social Enterprise

Employment law is as relevant to charities as it is to any other employer. Charities do however need to take account of and manage certain unique employment issues particularly relevant to them, such as the relationship and agreement with volunteers and the power to make obligated payments to employees ie enhanced redundancy payments.

We can advise on:

  • Contracts and policies
  • Employment disputes and dismissals
  • Equal opportunities and discrimination
  • Internal procedures, grievances, performance management
  • Managing change, Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment), restructuring, redundancy
  • Part time and fixed-term employees
  • The status of volunteers under employment
  • Training
