Guidance on reporting serious incidents

Guidance on reporting serious incidents

March 25, 2020

What is a serious incident, how do we test for it, what should we report and what shouldn’t we report? These are just some of the questions that charity trustees ask themselves. In December 2019, the Charity Commission released new guidance for charity trustees on when to report serious incidents involving a charity’s partners - read more about this guidance in our blog here

Following on from the guidance being released, Roman Kubiak, Head of Legacy, will & estate disputes and Vlad Macdonald-Munteanu, Associate, explore this guidance and offer their thoughts on how to test if an incident is serious, the reporting requirements and more. 

Creating the right culture for an equal workplace

Creating the right culture for an equal workplace

March 6, 2020

With issues of discrimination hitting the headlines on a daily basis surrounding the treatment of the Duchess of Sussex, Laurence Fox’s BBC Questiontime appearance and more, we ask what exactly can organisations do when an informal chat at the tea point turns into a formal allegation of race discrimination? What language is appropriate? Who decides what is reasonable? Is motive irrelevant?

Joined by Kate Walsh, Associate in our Employment and HR Services team and Ruth Coombs, Head of Wales for the Equality and Human Rights Commission, our podcast explores the latest furore and discuss what organisations can do to create the right culture for an equal workplace.
