The nonprofit sector, a growing and significant segment of the economy, is confronting important legal and regulatory changes and issues. This year’s Nonprofit Institute will focus on some of these important trends. We will have an all-star panel of employment lawyers address important workplace issues, including employment discrimination and harassment, downsizing or reorienting workforces, minimum wage and overtime considerations, and drawing distinctions between employees and independent contractors. Recent changes in the federal tax code have important implications for the nonprofit sector which we will address from several angles.
Leading practitioners will present on other important developments and topics, including grantmaking, the concerns of in-house attorneys and CEOs, and ethics for nonprofit attorneys. This full-day program will also include a presentation by representatives of the New York Attorney General’s Charities Bureau.
