Regularly throughout the year, Lawyers Alliance offers live webinars for nonprofit managers and Board members on a range of legal issues. A selection of these webinar recordings is available for purchase and viewing at your convenience.
Responding to COVID-19: Reducing Your Workforce
Both programming and funding have been upended by the pandemic. The Payroll Protection Program was only a temporary fix. Many nonprofits now face the unpleasant prospect of drastically reducing expenses, including payroll expense. Nonprofit leaders will have many questions. What are some of the alternatives to layoffs? How does the New York State Unemployment Insurance Shared Work program work? Which employees can be furloughed? How is that different from a layoff? How do I select employees for furlough or layoff? Do I need to worry about the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act?
Learning Objectives: Participants will learn about ways to avoid job losses, plus legal and practical considerations to reduce legal risk when partial, temporary, or permanent job loss can’t be avoided.
For Board members, senior leaders, and human resources staff.
Presenter: Judith Moldover, Senior Staff Attorney
