About this document

This is a sample employment policy for small charities or voluntary organisations.

You can use it as a starting point when developing a policy for your organisation. Just remember to reflect your culture, values, and terms and conditions of employment. You’ll also need to add your own content where we’ve indicated using square brackets.

This sample policy was produced by NCVO and employment law specialists WorkNest. It reflects statutory minimum requirements as of September 2023, but it’s not legal advice.
