HR & Legal Issues: Promoting employee longevity and avoiding costly mistakes

Other Session
Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Northeast Olympia

This seminar aims to give participants a cursory overview of the common HR mistakes that are made in nonprofit organizations, from faulty hiring practices to firing practices. Unfortunately, some of these mistakes can cost your organization quite a lot, wasting your hard earned donor money. Important considerations include hiring practices that discriminate based on gender or religion, proper practices for paying wages including how to handle an employee's "volunteer time," and much more.

We will also discuss practices, as supported by industry research, that help your staff feel valued and promote their longevity within your organization.

There will be an opportunity to submit questions prior to the meeting so we can address specific examples affecting your organizations.
