A subpoena is a legal document demanding that your nonprofit turn over documents or provide testimony in relation to a court proceeding. You can receive one even in a proceeding where your nonprofit is not a party, such as a request for client records in a domestic violence case. Subpoenas can cause distraction, and can raise difficult questions of protecting client confidentiality while still complying with the law. During this webcast, our speaker will educate you on responding to subpoenas, including:
• What a subpoena looks like;
• What it means when you receive one; and
• What steps to take when your nonprofit receives a subpoena.
