A Nonprofit HR white paper by Gerard P. Panaro, Attorney-at-Law, Howe & Hutton and Lisa Brown Morton, President/CEO, Nonprofit HR Solutions
With a possible government shutdown still looming on the horizon, many organizations who receive government funding are probably reviewing their plans for staffing during this period. And as uncertainty continues, it’s important to ensure you are fully aware of the legal implications of any actions you take.
Organizations have a number of options depending on their situation though. Affected organizations may determine that they cannot afford to pay their employees during the shutdown so they may chose to furlough staff, reduce pay, or require employees to take leave (using accrued, advanced or unpaid leave). They may also send their employees to mandatory training. But what if too many employees of a protected class are effected by decisions? Or if employee’s exempt status is violated when requiring time off?
The experts at Nonprofit HR have put together an information packed white paper that can help make your decision making easier. Download the full white paper here.
