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.

Presenter: Chris McCauley, CPA, Staff Attorney, Wayfind
