Wage and hour class and collective actions often expose many types of employers to substantial financial liability. Nonprofit employers in particular must regularly answer difficult questions about their compensation policies because of their use of unpaid interns and volunteers, staffing of conferences, seminars and other off-site events, and other unique circumstances.

Experienced attorneys from Venable LLP will discuss potential wage and hour pitfalls and provide advice on how nonprofit employers can avoid some of the most common problems. The covered topics will include:

  • exemptions from the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • unpaid interns
  • volunteers
  • independent contractors
  • commuting time
  • on-call employees
  • attendance at events outside the office

If left unaddressed, unclear compensation policies and payroll mistakes can carry serious consequences for nonprofits in the context of litigation.
