Employment Law for Charities

Unique challenges face charities under employment law.

Employment law is as relevant to charities as it is any other employer, and no tribunal will be influenced by a charity as the 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 i.e. enhanced redundancy payments.
