Advice on employment law for not-for-profit providers

Posted on March 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

City law firm Trowers & Hamlins has launched a book dealing with employent law issues, aimed at charities. The book is published by Jordans and is on sale for £35 a copy. Emma Burrows, partner and head of the employment department at Trowers & Hamlins, said charities needed a practical guide to employment law. “Frequent change to the law makes employment law difficult to negotiate for most employers,” Ms Burrows said. “The broad mix of staff employed by charities makes employment law even more complicated. “What we¹ve done in this book is look at all the issues that affect charities and put together a practical guide to deal with problems that arise, and give solutions to help charities avoid such problems in the future.” “Employment Law for Charities” covers issues such as when a volunteer can be considered an employee; how to deal with sickness absences; managing difficult employees and dealing with allegations against a charity or its staff. – To purchase a copy, contact Alicia Sexton or Customer Service
