Here’s what we can help with:
If you have ever been asked, (or asked yourself) any of the following questions, we can help provide the answers. We can match your nonprofit with a volunteer lawyer who can help with your specific legal issues. We also provide free workshops that address many of these and other important legal issues nonprofits face.
- What should be included in an employee handbook for our small nonprofit?
- Can we engage in lobbying for specific legislation?
- What are the potential liabilities of board members?
- Are our workers independent contractors or employees? And why does that matter?
- Should we register our trademark?
- Our nonprofit is tax-exempt, so do I need to pay this property tax bill?
- Are we subject to HIPAA, and if so, how to we comply?
- What kinds of background checks can we perform on volunteers or employees?
- What’s the difference between a merger, an affiliation, and a joint venture?
- If we generate income from a business venture, is it taxable?
- Can our volunteers be sued?
- What harassment training should employees and volunteer receive?
- We don’t need all our office rental space, can we sublet it?
