Jim White, Executive Director, Nonprofit Association of Oregon

Oregon has been bustling with newly passed and proposed regulations and legislation that affects your employees, your human resource practices, and your business model. This is your opportunity to hear from legal and HR experts about the changing regulatory landscape that nonprofit organizations must navigate to remain compliant. We will discuss what has already changed in 2016, what is about to change, and what emerging legislative changes you should be following.

Participants will learn:

  • How the new minimum wage increase will impact nonprofits statewide and tips for sustainability
  • Proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), what timeline to expect those changes, and how it will impact your organization.
  • About the new whistleblower policy legislation, why it is important, and what should be included in a whistleblower policy.
  • Answers to specific questions about new or pending regulation affecting nonprofit organizations. Submit your questions in advance via this link.

Take advantage of this this opportunity to get a convenient and timely update about these important issues. If the discussion helps you avoid even a single employment law misstep, your investment of time will be repaid many times over.
