Charity employment contract solicitors

Expert advice and support with employment contracts for the charity sector from the Pearcelegal charity solicitors.

Employment contracts help to protect workers and their employers. We help charities to create employment contracts and internal policies that are compliant and effective.

The charity sector makes up around 3% of the entire UK workforce. When hiring individuals to work for your charity, the employment contract is pivotal to the success of the role. Alongside internal policies and procedures, the employment contract sets out expectations and safeguards the employer from nuisance claims.

Our charity employment solicitors can help draft and update charity employment contracts that are clear, easy-to-understand and thorough. And when there is a dispute or grievance, we can help to advise on how to enforce your contracts. We’ll also help keep your organisation up to date with employment law, so you’ll always feel confident you are acting as a responsible employer.
