Best Employee Practices for Houses of Worship
Frank Sommerville, JD, CPA, shares the best employee practices for churches -- in compliance with Federal laws -- whether yours is a staff of one or 100.

Topics to be discussed in depth include:

EMPLOYEE HARASSMENT -- what constitutes harassment; why the vast majority of incidents go unreported (even in churches); and what you can do about it

A HARASSMENT POLICY -- the best hiring practices to avoid discrimination, including what questions you are (and aren't) allowed to ask

BEST HIRING PRACTICES -- what you should know about background checks (especially related to different staff and ministry positions); what to do if 'red flags' are identified as a result

TERMINATING EMPLOYEES -- documentation practices; timing advice; guidance on severance

COMPLIANCE WITH MINIMUM WAGE / OVERTIME RULES -- what qualifies as work time; who's exempt (including common misconceptions); record keeping strategies
