From board members or event committee members to in-office volunteers or off-site project volunteers, non-profits are managing various volunteers. Non-profits must use different approaches to manage the different groups of volunteers, while also remaining compliant with Department of Labor guidance to avoid misclassifications and the resulting legal consequences. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), individuals may volunteer or donate their services usually on a part-time basis, without contemplation of pay, to religious, charitable or other non-profits. However, volunteers may not work with for-profit private sector organizations, but may volunteer with public sector employers.
Join this session, where expert speaker Shiree K. Skinner will cover overall volunteer management strategies, including recruitment and retention of volunteers. This session will also examine Department of Labor guidance on volunteer vs. employee. In this session, Shiree will review the different approaches required for board members, committee members, in-office volunteers, and off-site and/or project volunteers. She will discuss key strategies for the recruitment, management and retention of each specific group of volunteers. You will get definitions and examples of volunteers according to the Department of Labor to help your nonprofit avoid misclassification and its legal consequences.
