Employment Law for Charities
Employment law issues come in all shapes and sizes and have become increasingly wide-ranging and ever more complex.
Employment law is subject to constant change which can be a challenge for you to know and understand.
Our charity employment solicitors assist charities, helping you manage effectively and get the best out of the investment you have put into your people.
We understand how important the relationship between the trustees and the senior teams are to a charity and we can assist in keeping this relationship stable and productive.
Our employment law solicitors have in-depth expertise in all matters affecting charities. A few examples of the support Birkett Long can provide:
- use of volunteers
- safeguarding and capability processes
- dealing with disciplinary and grievance issues
- charity mergers and corporate restructures
- redundancies and staff restructures
- advising on equal pay and equal opportunities
- Charity Commission reporting
- trustee obligations in making severance payments
- representation at employment tribunals
- drafting and reviewing policies and handbooks
Whatever your requirements, we are always happy to offer a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your particular query or concern, and how we can help you. We can work to a fixed or capped fee arrangement agreed with you. Call Martin Hopkins on 01268 244145 to find out how we can help.
