Legal Issues When Volunteers Are Injured: Is Your Nonprofit At Risk?
|Date / Time:
Volunteers are the lifeblood of your nonprofit and essential to the mission. Although many nonprofits believe that they are still shielded from civil liability as to their volunteers, that landscape has changed and is continuing to evolve in our society.
A significant claim from an injured volunteer can devastate a small nonprofit in financial and reputational impact. But forewarned is forearmed.
From this webinar you will obtain a better understanding as to how the law is evolving in its view of who is a "volunteer" and who is an "employee", why that might impact your mission, the types of injuries for which volunteers have and are making claims against the nonprofit, and risk management tips to protect your volunteers and to continue to fulfill your mission.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
