April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Friday, April 30, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM  |  View the program:

  • via LIVE webinar using Zoom: You will be emailed access information.
  • via WEBCAST recording: View online anytime. You will be emailed the video link within 1 business day (once the live program has been recorded and made into a web training).


  • Meredith S. Campbell, Chair, Employment and Labor Group, Shulman Rogers
  • Joyce Smithey, Managing Partner, Smithey Law Group LLC


Two experienced employment lawyers will provide a training on risks and best practices to a mixed group of:

  • leaders of small nonprofits; and
  • volunteer lawyers.

The initial presentation will include an open Q/A session for nonprofit employers. After the initial presentation, nonprofit attendees will leave, and the trainers will facilitate a follow-up discussion and Q/A from the volunteer lawyers. Volunteer lawyers must commit to providing brief advice to a nonprofit client of Community Law Center (CLC) within one year from this registration.


Topics will include questions like these:

  • Can employers require employees to get tested or vaccinated before returning to the work site?
  • What physical resources and allowances should employers provide to on-site or remote employees, and to in-person customers?
  • What changes to policy or employee handbooks should an employer make regarding COVID?
  • What should an employer do if an employee/volunteer/member of the public believes they caught COVID at the work site?
  • How can, should, or must an employer accommodate employees who are at high risk, or who are sick?
  • Which laws cover which employers?
