Minimizing Liability and Risk in Using Volunteers
Presented by: Drew Alexis, Alexis Law Firm

Many sanctuaries rely heavily on volunteer labor, both in connection with providing needed animal care and also in advocacy, outreach and the administrative work of running an organization. While volunteers may be crucial to the operation of a non-profit, they may also present challenges to an organization, including potential exposure to liability. This webinar will discuss ways in which a non-profit sanctuary can limit their liability when using volunteers and when paid staff also perform volunteer activities.
