In the context of continuous and wide-ranging employment law changes, running a successful business can be challenging, but for charitable organisations every-day employment issues can be more complex than most.

Most organisations operating in the third sector retain a combined workforce of volunteers and paid employees. It’s only natural that the team work alongside one another and are treated equally but it’s important that the status of volunteers is clear to avoid unfair treatment or unwitting discrimination. Equally, for a Charity, special restrictions apply when making redundancy payments.

Whilst Charities need to pay close attention to the particular effect that charity law may have on relationships with employees, all employees working in the UK have the same legal rights. Employment tribunals will not look ‘favourably’ upon the employer because they are a Charity.

We work with a wide range of Charity clients and have many years’ experience advising senior management and trustees of on all aspects of employment law, from straight-forward employment contracts and policies to complicated employment tribunals and workforce restructuring programmes.
