Charities are operating in an increasingly challenging environment and face many external commercial and regulatory pressures. This briefing will highlight the issues faced by charities in the current economic environment and give practical advice as to how these can impact on the operation of a charity.
The seminar will consider charities and trading and specifically the use of trading subsidiaries for charities, including when a subsidiary is necessary and the latest legal developments.
It will also examine the use of volunteers by charities from an employment law perspective, and how to avoid common pitfalls and problems and summarise the latest case reports and updates from the Charity Commission.
Gerry Morrison, Head of the Charities and Social Enterprise Team, will look at charities and trading, the use of trading subsidiaries and the latest legal developments. The session will cover the law in respect of charities and trading, why charities might need trading subsidiaries, the relationship between trading subsidiaries and charities and how to manage conflicts of interest.
Gerry will be supported by Harriet Wheeldon, a Solicitor in the Charities and Social Enterprise Team, who will discuss the latest case reports and updates from the Charity Commission.
A member of the Employment Team will be discussing recent employment law developments including in the sphere of volunteers that all charities employing people or considering employing people and engaging the services of volunteers need to be aware of.
