Legal Issues When Volunteers Are Injured: Is Your Nonprofit at Risk? - Webinar

  • ID: 3841690
  • Webinar
  • 90 Minutes
  • Lorman Business Center, Inc.
1 of 5
What do you do if your volunteer or employee gets injured? Be prepared with a comprehensive risk management plan.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of your nonprofit and essential to the mission. Although many nonprofits believe that they are still shielded from civil liability as to their volunteers, that landscape has changed and is continuing to evolve in our society. A significant claim from an injured volunteer can devastate a small nonprofit in financial and reputational impact. But forewarned is forearmed.
From this topic you will obtain a better understanding as to how the law is evolving in its view of who is a “volunteer” and who is an “employee”, why that might impact your mission, the types of injuries for which volunteers have and are making claims against the nonprofit, and risk management tips to protect your volunteers and to continue to fulfill your mission.

Learning Objectives
  • You will be able to discuss the Volunteer Protection Act.
  • You will be able to identify how common injuries present risk.
  • You will be able to explain how injuries arise from mission activities.
