The Pro Bono Partnership

Just about once per month I send out an email with nonprofit news, opportunities and general information to help the nonprofits in the Greater Dayton and surrounding areas. I sent the email last week, if you did not get it and would like to, please send me your email address and I will have you added to the email contact list.

I was pleased to announce in that email that we (all of the nonprofits in the Greater Dayton and surrounding areas) have a brand new resource partner. The Pro Bono Partnership is a nonprofit located in Cincinnati that serves their home base and the Greater Dayton area! They provide FREE legal assistance to nonprofits concerning just about anything that has to do with operation of your nonprofit. They will assist with human resource issues, debate over a property line, fiscal legalities and just about any other topic.  This is a wonderful resource. Think about all of the times you have wondered if a practice was legal or have had a human resource issue and wanted to strictly adhere to the law over a sensitive matter. The Pro Bono Partnership does limit help to those nonprofits for whom retaining an attorney would be cost prohibitive. In other words they want to help the small to middle sized organizations. But, please do not eliminate yourself from seeking their help no matter what your size. Just call and ask if they can help. There may be some questions to answer to determine if your organization can receive services, but it doesn’t cost anything to ask. Remember all of their services are free to nonprofits! Read on to find out about a workshop they are having to answer questions about the new Department of Labor regulations governing exempt employees.


New Overtime Rules From The DOL: Is Your Nonprofit Prepared?

Sponsored by: Jackson Lewis P.C. and Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio

July 26, 2016 | 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. | Interact for Health | Only 25 Spots Left As of Today!

The Department of Labor recently changed the rules governing overtime exemptions for executive, administrative, and professional employees. The salary threshold to be exempt from overtime pay requirements will increase to $47,476 ($913 per week) beginning December 1, 2016.    

Employers across the country are taking steps now to be ready to comply in December. These changes present unique challenges for many nonprofits.

If you have employees who are currently paid as exempt employees but who make less than $47,476 per year, it is important that you carefully consider these new rules.

Join us for a FREE seminar to discuss steps your organization can take to comply. This seminar is geared towards executive directors, H.R. directors and board members of nonprofits.

Speakers: Tara Burke, Esq. and Matt Byrne, Esq., Jackson Lewis P.C.
