One of the most important responsibilities for many boards is to hire and manage a talented CEO/executive director to handle the day-to-day management activities of the organization. Given increasing scrutiny and liabilities surrounding the employment of nonprofit executive directors, it is essential that board officers and directors have a comprehensive understanding of their responsibilities and liabilities relative to what is the most sensitive of employment relationships. This session will offer an overview of legal issues pertinent to employment arrangements in general, as well as focus on issues specific to executive directors, from hiring to evaluation to resignation, termination or retirement. We will look at commonly used legal documents—particularly those applicable to employment contracts and severance agreements. Board members will also be left with a better understanding of what they need to understand when it comes to the compensation of executive leadership.
