Given all that needs to be done each day, it is very easy for a nonprofit manager to overlook seemingly small staffing issues or to make decisions without understanding all the important aspects involved. But, inherent to the ever-changing world of managing staff are risks for not meeting legal compliance. Nonprofits, because of their structure, budgetary constraints, the blending of paid employees and volunteers, and the complexities of delivering a range of services in various environments, face a number of unique HR challenges. Failing to take the right actions, avoid the pitfalls and minimize mistakes puts the organization at risk for harming staff and being subjected to difficult lawsuits, fines, and loss of funding due to negative press and diminished reputation.

Please join Lynn Ivey as she helps managers understand the laws and best practices that apply to their organization to ensure that they make the right decisions as they lead their teams to fulfilling their mission. She will provide key information on current nonprofit staff management issues and concerns to help you make the right decisions, avoid missteps, and reduce your risk for adverse outcomes. Learn effective ways to manage special situations with your staff so you can focus more attention on achieving your organization’s mission.
