Keep Your Non-Profit Out of Hot Water: Stay Compliant with Employment Laws
Mason Alexander’s article “Keep Your Non-Profit Out of Hot Water: Stay Compliant with Employment Laws” was featured in the NC State University Philanthropy Journal on November 23, 2015.
Mason's sister is on the board of an out-of-state non-profit and called about a specific employee situation. During the course of the conversation, it became apparent that her non-profit was not in compliance with federal wage and hour laws.

In the article, Mason provides some lessons from what was being done at a non-profit organization and what should have been done.
