Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
What is she ideally hoping to achieve in your circumstances? Please note this is not always an instant service and I may not be able to reply immediately. However, rest assured that I am dealing with your question and will get back to you today. Thanks
The lady is -understandably-concerned that she will be obliged to appear in front of an 'investigative committee' to justify her position. She denies any malpractice or poor administration-however is uncomfortable about appearing without legal representation. As I originally stated-she is the grown-up daughter of a close friend of mine whose name is***** have asked Mr Tee to 'take over the reins' from this point on-wards-as the lady in question is both his daughter-and a tenant in his house. I am aware that the sums of money involved here may seem derisory in the greater scheme of things-However Mr Tee + his family are strong adherents to the Christian Religion-and Raymond himself is a Trustee of his local parish church. Hardly the traditional backdrop to criminality-one might have thought...! It is their dismay at being thought other than solid members of The Church-which has prompted me to seek your help.

Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. First of all I have no idea what video you are referring to but that is not something from our site, so it would likely be another source.
Going back to your query, as a volunteer, her rights will be very limited and there is no protection against unfair dismissal or discrimination. That means the organisation that employs her is able to dismiss her and even treat her unfairly, without her being able to legally challenge them. they could take action even if she has done nothing wrong or can prove she is innocent. They do not have to provide proof of her guilt before they make a decision. As she is not an employee, she does not have the basic rights provided for by law and will be left exposed if the organisation decides to take any action against her.
Any arguments she has will simply be of an ethical nature and it is the legal protection which she requires to be able to challenge them or take it further, which sadly she will not have.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be glad to help. All the best
