Non-Profits, #MeToo and Talent Management in 2019

Nonprofit Education Series
May 9, 2019 at 3:30pm5:00pm (PDT)
Farella Braun + Martel LLP

While both for-profit and nonprofit organizations have similar HR needs, talent management and up-to-date employment law compliance present unique challenges for nonprofits. Join us as we discuss:

  • California legislative updates: new requirements that were passed in response to the #MeToo movement.
  • Independent contractors and volunteers: when can a worker be properly classified as an independent contractor or volunteer rather than an employee?
  • Employee compensation: best practices and potential pitfalls for nonprofit employers.
  • Benefits and time off: must haves, nice to haves, and who is entitled to what.
