HR for Nonprofits and Social Enterprises During COVID-19

How can nonprofits and social enterprises prepare for and respond to human resource related issues, in the face of a quickly evolving landscape? 

COVID-19 is creating unprecedented disruption to the workplace and the world. We want to help your nonprofit, charity and/or social enterprise meet this challenge head on despite the unknown.  

This webinar is not an update or informational session on COVID-19 itself, but is focused on how organizations can prepare, plan, mitigate and communicate effectively human resource related implications on their organization.  

In this webinar we will cover the following topics:

  • Health and wellbeing of employees 

  • Leaves that employees can access (vacation -> ESA leaves)

  • How to appropriately deal with layoffs (and mandated business closures)

  • Employment Insurance 

  • Work-sharing programs 

  • Temporary Business Wage Subsidy

  • Occupational health and safety concerns/liability 

We will also include time for a Q&A to give you a chance to ask your most pressing employment law questions. 

TARGET AUDIENCE: Executive Directors, Board members, HR Professionals, Managers and anyone in a supervisory role
