On July 12 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Dixie Applied Technology College Emergency Response Training Center, the Utah Nonprofits Association will present a training workshop for nonprofit organizations entitled “Human Resources for Nonprofits.” The workshop will be presented by Carol Golichnik, owner of CG Nonprofit Solutions. The session is part of the Utah Nonprofits Association’s ongoing professional development program. Fees are $30 for Utah Nonprofits Association members and $50 for nonmembers. Those who register and pay for one attendee from an organization can bring a second person at no cost.
Golichnik has 30 years of experience working with businesses primarily as a human resource professional and a manager of operations. During the last 9 years, she has expanded to use her experience in nonprofit settings as a consultant and an enthusiastic volunteer. She is also an active member of the Southern Utah Committee of the Utah Nonprofit Association.
The session targets the Utah Nonprofits Association’s nonprofit membership base. However, all nonprofit organizations can participate regardless of membership. “The fact is, human resource laws and strategies are always changing, but accountability remains constant,” said Dawn McLain, Southern Utah Committee Chair. “It is in the best interest of every organization to keep abreast of the ongoing changes in this area.”
“This training course provides nonprofits with practical and actionable skills for developing human resource programs based on the latest requirements in terms of legality and best practices,” said McLain.
The workshop will discuss a variety of human resource based compliance and reporting issues and focus on important HR issues for nonprofits and help you to be comfortable knowing your organization is in compliance. You will also leave with a toolkit to help you with everyday HR decision making and tasks.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
—The latest rules on determining employee vs. independent contractor status.
—What documentation is required when hiring an employee.
—The difference between exempt and non-exempt status for employees.
—Rules for employees who volunteer.
—What benefits are required for employees.
—What policies need to be in place even if there is no employee handbook.
—Other topics as determined by the needs of the group.
