ST. GEORGE, UT—On Wednesday July 12, 2017 the Utah Nonprofits Association (UNA), will present a training workshop for nonprofit organizations entitled Human Resources for Nonprofits which will be presented by Carol Golichnik, Owner of CG Nonprofit Solutions. The session is part of UNA’s ongoing professional development program that provides comprehensive training to nonprofit organizations, their boards, volunteers and key stakeholders in order to enhance and support success, impact and sustainability for the vital work, programs and services they provide our communities.
“This training course provides nonprofits with practical and actionable skills for developing human resource programs based on the latest requirements in terms of legality and best practices.” Dawn McLain, Southern Utah Committee Chair explains. The session is targeted for UNA’s nonprofit membership base; however, all nonprofit organizations are welcome to participate regardless as to membership and all participants are encouraged to include key team members from their staff and board of directors as well. “The fact is, human resource laws and strategies are always changing, but accountability remains constant. It is in the best interest of every organization to keep abreast of the ongoing changes in this area.”
The workshop will discuss a variety of human resource based compliance and reporting issues with time allotted for nonprofits to discuss/ask questions related to their organization or HR challenges.
Human Resources for Nonprofits
Are employment laws different for nonprofits? NO they are not.
Does your nonprofit know you need to be in compliance, but in the back of your mind still worry that you are forgetting something important? Take a deep breath and let’s talk about it.
In this training, we will focus on the most important HR issues for nonprofits and help you to be comfortable knowing your organization is in compliance. You will also leave with a toolkit to help you with everyday HR decision making and tasks.
Participants will learn about:
the latest rules on determining employee vs. independent contractor status
what documentation is required when hiring an employee
the difference between exempt and non-exempt status for employees
rules for employees who volunteer
what benefits are required for employees
what policies need to be in place even if there is no employee handbook
other topics as determined by the needs of the group – bring your questions!
