    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action, Fife‘s Third Sector Strategy Group
    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
    • GDPR
    • Confidentiality
    • Dismissal
    • Risk of sanction to volunteers

    Who should attend: Trustees, those with supervisor responsibility for volunteers and any other managers.
