Employees & volunteers
To achieve optimum performance your organisation needs to engage with its people, have the correct policies in place and implement them diligently
Employment and pensions considerations can be quite complicated for charitable organisations, especially if you have large numbers of part-time workers or volunteers.
We work with you to deliver employment advice in a manner that is appropriate to and consistent with your values. We’ll help you implement best HR practice and keep you informed of changes in legislation and case law that might affect you.
We also provide training to HR professionals and people managers to ensure your people relationships are consistent and effective throughout your structure.
Regrettably, however hard you try, you will encounter problems. Where people disputes arise, we are on hand to advise on the best course of action. We’ll do all we can to minimise disruption and maintain reputation throughout. If alternative dispute resolution isn’t a viable option, we have the expertise to represent you in the Employment Tribunal.
We advise on all aspects of employment law including:
- employment contracts and policies
- advice on vetting employees and volunteers
- managing change – restructures, redundancy, TUPE transfers
- performance management
- tribunal claims
