Navigating Worker-related Rules in Washington State

Navigating Worker-related Rules in Washington State

What every nonprofit needs to know to be compliant with Washington State Department of Labor & Industries rules

Tuesday, June 18, 2024
12:00 – 1:00 pm Pacific

How do I figure out who can be exempt from overtime pay?
What are the rules related to paying interns to take on projects?
Does safety and health law apply to all volunteer organizations?
Are you telling me that my organization needs an Accident Prevention Program even though we all work from home?

Nonprofits are required to follow worker-related laws in Washington. That means that every nonprofit needs to know what those laws are and how they relate to their work serving their community.

Navigating Worker-related Rules in Washington State provides an overview of what you need to know and why. During this session, we will walk through the three types of worker-related rules overseen by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries: work standards, safety and health, and workers’ compensation. You will learn what nonprofit employers need to do to stay compliant in Washington State. You will hear about common challenges, as well as opportunities that you may have not known about. Share your experiences with colleagues and leave the session with a few action steps to move forward within your organization.

This workshop expands on the resources available through the new Nonprofit Labor & Industries Navigator resource, developed by nonprofit educator Nancy Bacon in partnership with the Department of Labor & Industries for employer outreach and education. To learn more, visit www.nonprofitlearning.center/LNI.

Aero Methow Rescue Service

GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.

Scholarship Recipient

My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. He told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.
