Introduction

Charities in England & Wales have the same obligations, responsibilities and duties to their employees just like any other business, but they must also ensure that their workplace practices are constitutionally compliant and meet the high expectations of public scrutiny: ‘getting it right’ has never been so demanding.

Negative publicity can have a devastating impact on public confidence and charitable funding, yet many charities are operating on slender budgets and with over-stretched resources. As we emerge from the challenges of a global pandemic, it is more important than ever for employment advisers to the charity sector to understand the unique environment in which their charity clients operate and to be able to recognise potential risks at the earliest opportunity.

This webinar will cover the key areas where tricky issues can arise and where legal advisers can play an invaluable role in identifying problems and preventing complaints, claims and penalties arising later.
