Event description

Description

Does your community organisation engage volunteers? Do you know the legal differences between paid and unpaid workers? This session will cover the components of a successful and legally compliant volunteer program and will cover:
  • the legal differences between a volunteer, an employee and an independent contractor
  • volunteer insurance
  • the volunteer selection process and equal opportunity laws
  • screening and background checks
  • how to meet the ‘duty of care’ your organisation owes to volunteers
  • an organisation’s legal responsibility for the actions of its volunteers
  • reimbursing or paying volunteers
  • volunteers’ personal information and privacy
  • reviewing volunteer performance and having difficult conversations
  • ending the volunteer relationship
  • recent developments in volunteer case law

This session will be split over two days: Tuesday 26 September and Thursday 28 September. We recommend you attend both Part 1 and Part 2 to gain a full understanding of the topic.

Supported by the City of Canterbury Bankstown and funded by the NSW Government through the Stronger Communities Fund.
