  •  The key legal differences between a volunteer, an employee and an independent contractor.
  • Understand your organisation’s legal obligations, and potential liability, for the safety of its volunteers.
  • Understand the legal situation if a volunteer injures or causes harm to a third party – can your organisation be liable?
  • How ‘workplace behaviour laws’ (discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying), apply to volunteers and the potential vicarious liability of the your organisation.
  • The appropriate insurance cover for volunteers.

The event is hosted by the NSW Centre for Volunteering and presented by Justice Connect.
