Employment within the Christian, Religious & Faith Sector is different to “usual” employment relationships. In our experience, having an employment lawyer who understands the Christian, Religious & Faith Sector will assist you in achieving your ministry objectives.
For example, we routinely consider and advise faith based clients on the following types of issues:
- Employee, Spiritual Appointee or Volunteer? Determining the best method for engaging your employees.
- Exempt Fringe Benefit issues for religious practitioners.
- Treatment of Family Tax A, Family Tax B and Parenting Payments for religious practitioners.
- Dealing with morality/lifestyle clauses within the Contract of Employment.
