March Lunch & Learn Webinar

Bringing Nonprofit Volunteers & Employees Back to Work Safely with Reduced Legal Risks

Join us on March 1, 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a Lunch & Learn Webinar. Dr. Jim Castagnera, Esq. will discuss how to bring your volunteers and employees back with a “smart” comprehensive plan. For example, the plan should cover: the number of volunteers and employees that can safely come back to your workplace, necessary redesigns to workspaces, and the broader workplace to comply with new safety and health standards; which volunteers and employees, if any, can work from their homes or other remote locations; new volunteer and employee safety and travel policies and practices; supervision of volunteers, community outreach programs, communications with clients, etc. The ongoing federal, state, and local regulations and legal compliance requirements, as well as new health and safety guidance and best practices all, have an essential role to play in those decisions. All of which need to be considered every step of the way to reduce the risks of getting your reopening wrong and increasing your organization’s potential liability.
