Employees are your most valuable asset, and yet employees can also be your nonprofit’s most significant liability. Nonprofit employers in particular face challenges due to the expectations of fair treatment and of a “social contract” inherent in the public benefit focus of a nonprofit’s mission. We will cover the top five things you need to know about employment law, including minimum wage and overtime rules, hiring, engagement of non-employees (volunteers and independent contractors), payroll, and anti-discrimination laws. You will leave this workshop with concrete action steps to move your organization forward.

Who should attend: This workshop is designed for nonprofit board members of staff interested in nonprofit law basics. It is appropriate for organizations with or without staff.
