Event description

Description

Does your community organisation engage volunteers? Do you know the legal difference between paid and unpaid workers?
The way the law applies to volunteers can be complex and confusing. This popular session, presented by NFP Law (Justice Connect) steps participants through the components of a successful and legally-compliant volunteer program. Topics we cover include:

  • The legal differences between a volunteer, an employee and an independent contractor
  • Other forms of unpaid work (such as vocational placements, internships, work trials, work for the dole, and court ordered 'volunteering')
  • Volunteers and risk management
  • Volunteer selection process and equal opportunity laws
  • Volunteer 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
  • The importance of volunteer insurance
  • Workplace behaviours and volunteers (discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying and victimisation)
  • Reimbursing or paying volunteers
  • Volunteers records, personal information and privacy
  • Reviewing volunteer performance and having difficult conversations
  • Ending the volunteer relationship
  • Top tips for managing an effective and legally-compliant volunteer program

Join us as we make the law easy to understand in this interactive and engaging session. We will provide morning tea and give you an hour to grab some lunch from a nearby cafe or the market while you network with your peers.
