A distinctive feature of charities is that many workers within them are not employees. Staff may be employees, seconded staff or volunteers. Managing staff of varying legal status can cause difficulties for a charity. For example: what recompense can be paid to a volunteer without that person achieving employment protection? Does a volunteer have a duty of confidentiality? If a volunteer designs a charity's website, who owns the intellectual property rights in it and the supporting software? Does the secondment of staff have to be shown as a donation and to whom is the staff member answerable?;The book is written specifically for charities and, whilst authoritative, is not legalistic. Case studies, both fictitious and derived from the reported cases, illustrate the points of law. Each chapter includes ""practical guidance"" summaries and is geared towards the prevention of problems. The book covers the unique role and implications of using volunteers. Discrimination claims have especially adverse consequences (in terms of publicity) for charities and are dealt with at length. The book explains the Employment Act 2002 which extends rights of employees.
