This course provides an essential framework for understanding the major human resources responsibilities in nonprofits. Because workplace laws guide and control much of what we do with employees, participants will become familiar with the major workplace laws and the legal principles that govern the employment relationship. You will learn about the importance of good policies and procedures in creating an effective working environment. The class also provides an introduction to two of the most common and challenging HR responsibilities: you’ll get a step-by-step process for addressing performance problems and learn guidelines for hiring the right people.
