Labor 101: Nonprofits and Volunteers, Contractors, and Employees – Legal Clinic

April 25, 2018 | 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Do labor laws around employees, volunteers, interns, and contractors keep you up at night? You are not alone. Many nonprofit leaders are faced with a complex web of rules and regulations around labor while also juggling day-to-day operations. If you find yourself wondering about your labor practices and whether you’re setting yourself up for a legal issue, you’ll want to join in on this workshop.

In this workshop, we’ll cover a variety of common stumbling blocks nonprofit leaders encounter when working with employees, volunteers, interns and contractors.

Key topics include:

  • How do you legally classify someone as an employee, independent contractor, volunteer or intern,
  • What legal responsibilities come along with each classification,
  • What does it take to bring on my first new hire and how do I hire legally,
  • What ongoing payroll requirements do I have as a nonprofit leader with employees,
  • What key documents should I have for employees, volunteers, interns and contractors, to help lower my risk exposure, and
    much, much more.

Time: 4:00-6:00pm (Clinic), 5:30-6pm (Dinner), 6:00-8:00pm (Workshop)
Location: Wayfind & NAC Office, 515 W Harrison Street, Suite 208, Kent, WA 98032
Presenter: Chris McCauley, CPA, Staff Attorney, Wayfind
