Not-for-profit organisations can be made up of a range of workers, from volunteers and interns through to employees and contractors. Understanding the legal differences is vital.

Who is covered by your insurance? Do you need a contract? What systems and processes can you put in place to ensure you’re doing the right thing? We’ll cover all this more plus provide you with practical tips, templates and further resources.

What we’ll cover:

  • The legal differences between volunteers, employees and contractors
  • Other forms of unpaid work (internships, vocational placements, unpaid work trials)
  • How to be clear about who you’re engaging

What you’ll receive:

  • 75-minutes of plain-language training from an expert lawyer
  • Copy of webinar recording and slide presentation (recording available for 30 days)
  • Opportunity to submit questions
  • Information on further resources and support

Cost: $30 - $50
