Minimizing Liability and Risk in Using Volunteers

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.

This hour long webinar was presented by: Drew Alexis with the Alexis Law Firm. Mr. Alexis represents employers, in particular financial institutions, small employers and non-profit organizations, and individual employees in a wide range of employment disputes before federal and state courts and administrative agencies, including in the areas of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, wrongful termination, constructive termination, wage and hour violations, breach of contract, fraud, defamation and leave of absence law violations.  Mr. Alexis has both jury trial and appellate experience and has litigated employment cases for over 20 years.
