Volunteers and PAYE, employment disputes

Recent Legal Updates from Sandy Adirondack include a warning on avoiding problems with payments to volunteers which are not proper reimbursement for out of pocket expenses. As well as potentially creating employment rights, HM Revenue and Customs could expect PAYE to be operated – failure can lead to large tax bills and penalties. See http://www.sandy-a.co.uk/employment.htm#vol-paye.

Also various items under the heading ‘Employment disputes and claims’, such as new tribunal fees, conciliation processes, compensatory awards (some have already been mentioned here) – start at http://www.sandy-a.co.uk/employment.htm#conciliation and scroll down for the complete updates.
