2nd Session

Employment Law: What Every Nonprofit Needs to Know       Wednesday, April 19

If you have employees, you have employment risks. Unfortunately, it's hard to keep track of all the laws and changes to them. This seminar is designed to give nonprofit leaders strategies to avoid common employee claims in lawsuits and implement best practices. Topics covered include general employment laws affecting nonprofit organizations; discussion of common employment pitfalls for nonprofits; and guidance on classification of workers: independent contractors vs. employees and exempt vs. nonexempt.

Speakers: Jeffrey A. Mullins, Partner, and Douglas C. Anspach, Partner, Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP

3rd Session

               Intellectual Property Basics for Nonprofits                Tuesday, May 16

Join us to learn about key issues that nonprofit organizations need to be aware of to protect their intellectual property, including logos, names, marks, ideas, services and inventions. This seminar will answer common intellectual property questions including: Why is intellectual property protection important to my nonprofit? How do trademarks, copyrights, and other types of intellectual property protections work? If my nonprofit hires someone to create something (logo, curriculum, website), who owns it? If a nonprofit has intellectual property rights, what are its enforcement options?

Speakers: Nadia A. Klarr, Attorney, Taft Stettinius & Hollister, LLP, and Raymond A. Stefanski, Senior Counsel, Gold Medal Products
