Do you know what your obligations are as an employer? Do you fully understand the difference between an employee and a contractor? How comfortable do you feel in managing issues within your workplace?

Workforces are the backbone of any organisation so protecting them as well as your organisation is essential.

This masterclass with lawyer Daniel Komesaroff from Justice Connect’s Not-for-profit Law will address a number of key employment legal issues you need to know so you can be confident that your organisation is doing the right thing by its workers.


What the masterclass will cover:

Not-for-profit and community organisations have the same legal obligations to their workers as any other employer – but that doesn’t mean employment law is easy to understand or implement. There is a lot of information available on employment law, but it can be hard to know what is useful and where to start. In this masterclass we’ll cover:

  • How to understand and apply employee entitlements.
  • The key differences between employees and contractors.
  • How to manage issues with workers.
  • Relevant cases, top tips and additional resources to help in the future.


What should I expect from this webinar?


You’ll come away from the masterclass with:

  • An introduction to the laws that create employment law obligations.
  • An insight into the differences between employees and contractors and the risks of mischaracterising workers.
  • A framework to respond to workplace issues like underperformance and misconduct.
  • An update on key cases impacting an organisation’s employment law obligations.
  • Top tips and resources to access further support.



Who is this masterclass for?

Anyone involved in recruiting or managing workers in a not-for-profit or community organisation will benefit from this masterclass.
