Program: Legal Issues Related to Volunteer Management

We live in an in increasingly litigious society. Whether you see this as a good thing or a bad thing, the fact remains that volunteer management professionals increasingly must be aware of the legalities of their work – whether that is the risks organizations can pose to volunteers or the liabilities volunteers can pose to the organization and/or its constituents. Spend the day gaining knowledge about your risks and responsibilities and strategies for preparing for both.

Come to this class to learn more about a variety of legal topics that affect volunteer management, including:

  • Liability of nonprofit organizations and volunteers;
  • Legal protection for volunteers;
  • The use of, and validity of, waivers and releases;
  • The application of HIPAA and other privacy-related laws on the use of volunteers;
  • What you need to be thinking about in the way of handbooks, forms, and volunteer orientation;
  • And more!

Instructor: Instructors for this course have backgrounds in law, risk management, human resources and volunteer management.
