Employment standards acts dictate the minimum terms of employment that must be complied with by employers in both the profit and not-for-profit sectors. Focusing on the laws of Ontario and British Columbia, the Charities and Not-for-Profit Employment Law Handbook takes you step-by-step through the legislative requirements. From hours of work to overtime and from statutory holidays to trade unions, it delivers knowledgeable answers to the employment standards questions all not-for-profit institutions face. However, charities and not-for-profit organizations also operate in a unique business environment, with unique concerns. That’s why the Handbook includes valuable guidance on:
  • The personal liability of directors of not-for-profits in relation to the breach of employment law provisions
  • Why charities should check wage and benefit levels when requesting funding and budgets
  • Employment law implications of a merger or splitting up of a charity
  • The implications of recent and pending privacy laws on the collection of personal information by organizations
  • The application of employment law legislation to volunteers
  • The obligation of charities and not-for-profits to provide for benefits during maternity or parental leave as well as termination or severance pay obligations
  • Employment selection decisions in light of human rights legislation
  • “Service rights” of contracted fundraisers
The Appendices (provided by the Canadian Centre for Philanthropy) includes examples of an Executive Director Job Description, a Supervisor Guide, an Employee Guide, a Personal Development Plan and Sample Interview Questions for the Executive Director Position of a charitable organization.
