Training Overview

Learn all the current employment laws for nonprofits. Earn a valuable certification and avoid lawsuits.

The Biden Administration and COVID-19 pandemic have prompted many recent changes to employment laws. In substantial ways, these laws apply differently to nonprofits than other organizations. You must understand the legal requirements for how you recruit, hire, manage, pay, reward, and terminate employees (and volunteers!).

To help you master this complex area, we are offering the Nonprofit Employment Law Certification. This information-packed and engaging program will enable you to:

  • Adhere to government requirements without fines and penalties
  • Avoid lawsuits resulting from employment mistakes
  • Advance your career
