NGCAA warns clubs to comply with employment law

8.13am 2nd October 2008 - Management Topics

The National Golf Clubs’ Advisory Association (NGCAA) is sadly being contacted by an increasing number of golf clubs who are affected by the “slowdown”. In some cases the decline in memberships and the resulting reduction in income streams is creating a need for reductions in employee numbers.

A failure to comply with legislative requirements in relation to redundancy dismissals will lead to claims of unfair dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination.

The NGCAA recommend that Clubs take appropriate legal advice, otherwise redundancies may not result in the hoped for cost savings but higher liabilities for clubs to meet due to employment claims.

A checklist for clubs compelled to follow the redundancy route has been prepared by the Association’s legal advisors and can be obtained from the Association at The Old Threshing Barn, Homme Castle Barns, Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire, WR6 6RR Tel: 01886 812943 Fax: 01886 812935 email:
