Policies for Churches/Charities – Paying Staff

Amount: £10.00

Employed staff are a vital component in any church or Christian charity. Having a policy in place to recognise this, and also as a basis for setting pay levels, is an important part of making sure that they are valued and properly looked after. This template policy and its associated guidelines provide a basis for a ‘paying staff’ policy, which churches and charities can easily adapt to best meet their own situation.

Topics included:

  • General policy on paying staff recognising:
    • The important role being fulfilled
    • The need to remunerate staff fairly
    • The need to acknowledge ‘conflicts of interest’
    • The need for confidentiality
  • What factors should churches and charities consider when setting remuneration levels?
  • How should a church or charity payroll be administered?
