Created: 29/01/2018, Updated: 06/02/2018
When: 9:30 - 12:30, Thursday 08 March 2018 Where: Volunteer House, 69-73 Crossgate, Cupar, KY15 5AS This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action, Fife‘s Third Sector Strategy Group Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £20.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
This session looks at the legal implications when recruiting/managing volunteers and how to implement best practice, while ensuring your organisation remains legally compliant. Delivered by experts in both the law and practice, this session will cover:
Volunteers’ legal status
Equality Act (2010)
Giving lunch/expenses/gifts to volunteers
Risk of sanction to volunteers
Who should attend: Trustees, those with supervisor responsibility for volunteers and any other managers.
