Allaying your Employment Law Concerns

Many ‘not for profit’ companies in the sport sector are considering how to employ staff and the coalition government’s ‘Big Society’ concept encourages this trend.  However, many smaller organisations such as sports clubs and community organisations are concerned about their responsibilities to support staff under regularly changing employment law.  

To overcome these concerns, Podium has developed a range of short employment law workshops, delivered by qualified HR specialists providing straightforward support and advice and dispelling myths around employing people.


“The workshop on Employment Law Updates went very well and the Board members were really positive in their responses. The tutor, Fiona was excellent and managed to pitch workshop to include everyone.  Thank you to Podium for organising.  We would recommend Podium Training & Development to other organisations.” 

Sue Hough - Chief Executive, Dorset Football Association
