Employment Law for Nonprofit Boards: Avoiding Common Mistakes

Thursday, November 12 from 11:30 am to 1 pm

The Museum at Central School
124 Second Ave. East, Kalispell

presented by: Mora McCarthy of Flathead Job Service
hosted by: NpDP

Please RSVP to or 406/756-3618 to ensure enough handouts and seating.

According to the Nonprofit Risk Management Center, employment related claims comprise over 85% of all nonprofit insurance claims filed under Directors’ and Officers’ Liability policies. This workshop will cover the following questions:

  • Are nonprofits exempt from paying overtime?
  • Can nonprofits give comp time?
  • Can nonprofit employees volunteer, too?
  • Can nonprofits just use Independent Contractors instead of employees?

Attend this workshop to protect the organization you serve, manage risk for the nonprofit and mitigate your personal liability as a board member.
