Trustees’ workshop in Leeds puts spotlight on employment law pitfalls

A workshop in Leeds on May 23 will advise charity board trustees on good governance in the fast-moving area of employment law.

Hosted by hlw Keeble Hawson at the firm’s offices in Capitol House, Russell Street, ‘How to avoid the pitfalls of employment law’ will be held in partnership with the Small Charities Coalition.

Covering four key themes – the legal status of charity employees, workers and volunteers; their rights; how to deal with potential claims; and steps to minimise risk – the session will be presented by hlw Keeble Hawson associate and employment expert, Lauren Fulcher.

With almost a decade’s experience, Lauren acts mainly on behalf of employers and regularly works with charities to ensure their employment law needs are met.

Lauren said: “Employment law is subject to rapid changes and charities are as responsible as any other organisation to keep up to speed. They are likewise under great scrutiny with trustees potentially personally liable if things go wrong. We will equip attendees with valuable insights they can put to use in their respective charities.”

The workshop runs from 8:30am-11am, with a light breakfast available and a question and answer session. To reserve a place, visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/how-to-avoid-the-pitfalls-of-employment-law-tickets-33207789392 or email simongorman@hlwkeeblehawson.co.uk
