The pandemic is receding, and more nonprofit employees are coming back to work together. Now is the time to take another look at some of the basic rules of employment law for nonprofits.

Many of the issues will continue essentially the same as they were, but some will have to change in the “new normal”. The rules help create the atmosphere for collegial and collaborative work within the organization.

Employment liability claims are among the most frequent and most serious potential litigation issues that nonprofits face. Join us for a comprehensive overview of some of the most critical issues in employment law, including:

  • FMLA/COVID-related leave
  • Vaccine policies
  • Returning employees to work and remote work
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Off-work social media use by employees
  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination and retaliation
  • Employee handbooks
  • Disciplinary procedures
  • Investigating workplace complaints

We’ll cover issues from establishing the rules in compliance with the law, communicating the rules, and investigating complaints about violation of the rules.

Come with your pressing employment law questions and learn how you can keep on the right side of a lawsuit!

*CPE & CLE credits are available for this program for accountants and lawyers; to receive credit you must register through Nonprofit Issues.

*If you had previously seen information about scholarships for this and other events, courtesy of The Provident Bank Foundation, the pot has run dry! We’re so glad so many nonprofit professionals in Bucks, Lehigh, and Northampton Counties were able to attend our programs free of charge, and we hope to offer similar opportunities for others in the future. Keep your eye out for other scholarship funds!
