Employment Law is one of the fastest changing areas of law and it is important that the Third Sector keeps abreast of these changes.

Mistakes and gaps in knowledge can lead to an employment tribunal claim. Last year, the average Unfair Dismissal claim cost almost £9,000 in compensation, and £22,000 in costs, which are generally not recoverable. Apart from the financial cost, the cost in terms of management time and stress can also be substantial. Bluntly, an unsuccessful tribunal case can result in severe damage to an organisation, and even in it having to close its doors.
Community Foundation's latest series of practical employment law training is designed to cover both the new areas of employment law, and the subjects which most often lead to disputes and legal claims.
