Description:

Want to start or more effectively operate a community organization, small business, or social enterprise? Want to learn relevant legal implications for operating a community-based organization in the care industry in the COVID-19 pandemic? This presentation provides easy to understand explanations of confusing legal topics for people looking to better their community through business. The presentation will start with a general overview of independent contracting, as well as different entities, for those looking to start or maintain a business. It will then focus in on how community-based organizations in the care industry, and especially how businesses with frontline workers, can better understand government regulations, technological implications of virtual care, and reshaping business models in the world of COVID-19.

Topics covered will include:

  • Independent Contracting and Entities 101 – what is an entity, and which entity is right for you?
  • What do you need to know to work as an independent contractor?
  • Social Enterprises 101 – how to benefit your community and make money in an equitable and inclusive way to advance social justice
  • Select Legal Implications of Operating Community-Based Care Organizations
  • COVID-19 related grants and forgivable loans 
  • Maintaining compliance with and notifying recipients of your organizations’ care services of state and federal COVID-19 regulations regarding restrictions, such as stay-at-home orders, capacity limits, etc.
  • Vaccine mandates
  • Turnover in care organizations
  • Increased demand for care organizations’ services
  • Telehealth, technology usage, and other privacy concerns in general by care organizations while communicating remotely, internally, or with recipients of your organization’s care services
