What’s the difference between a volunteer and an employee?
It’s a puzzle. We want our volunteers to feel valued, and to be accountable. But volunteers are not employees. What’s the difference between supervising a volunteer and an employee? What do you need to be aware of legally so a volunteer can’t sue for wages? How can you train staff on expectations and restrictions of working with volunteers? Lisa Yeager will lead a peer to peer discussion at her organization the Sno-Valley Senior Center in Carnation. Lisa will have some handouts but won’t have all the answers! This is a peer to peer discussion so we can all learn from each other.
Where: Sno-Valley Senior Center, 4610 Stephens, Carnation, WA 98014
