  • termination of the employment relationship; and
  • determining appropriate compensation by registered charities.

This program is designed to allow Charities and Not-For-Profits to understand the legal requirements and parameters of employment law and to avoid some of the most common mistakes that can cost non-profits and charities significant resources.

Cost: $125.00 (includes light breakfast, coffee, materials, and registration fees.  Lunch is only provided for those attending the afternoon seminar as well).

The program will be led by lawyers Scott Chambers and Mark Blumberg.
