About the webinar

Volunteers can be the lifeblood of NFP organisations. However, they come with their own set of risks and challenges. This session covers:

  • Volunteers versus employees – what are the key differences?
  • Unpaid interns – defining the legal relationship
  • Screening volunteers
  • Recruitment of volunteers – ensuring you do not discriminate
  • Managing volunteer safety and OHS obligations
  • Drafting volunteer agreements – understanding the key rights, roles and responsibilities
  • Potential liability for volunteer actions
