Today Michael Foster held the second of our “Learning Lunches” on employment law for local charitable and voluntary groups today in partnership with Hastings Voluntary Action. Around 20 delegates attended to learn more about how to support their employees and volunteers and avoid problems arising. Michael also announced the launch of his new discounted legal service for the voluntary and charitable sector.

Speaking after the event Michael said, “As part of our social responsibility policy we strive to give back to our community. We are therefore pleased to announce the launch of discounted legal services for the voluntary and charitable sector. In these changing times many charities and voluntary organisations are already employers, but even those smaller groups who rely solely on volunteers are not immune to legal challenges. It is important to protect budgets through effective policies and contracts and to get specialist advice if a problem occurs. That’s why we are offering organisations who are members of Hastings Voluntary Action or Rother Voluntary Action, a special rate for our services.”
