Employee, contractor or volunteer? Updated guidelines now available

Not-for-profit Law’s updated employee, contractor or volunteer guide covers the differences between these  types of workers and how the differences can affect organisational obligations, as well as providing links to further resources and highlighting state-specific regulations. The guide outlines the type of work and benefits to which employees, contractors and volunteers are entitled, and highlights any exceptions that may apply. Access the guide. There is also an app designed to complement the National Volunteer Guide, to help volunteer-involving organisations understand the key legal obligations that not-for-profit organisations have towards volunteers. The key topics include recruitment, safety, unlawful workplace behaviour, managing performance and ending the volunteer relationship. Access the app.
