NPO ETHICAL AND LEGAL COMPLIANCE: NAVIGATING A CHANGING LANDSCAPE
NAVIGATING CHANGING NPO ETHICAL & LEGAL COMPLIANCE
This two day workshop will be focused on how the law and other expectations impact the sustainable delivery of the missions of NPOs in South Africa. Its main object will be to raise awareness of the obligations imposed on NPOs and provide to NPO staff, managers and/or board members some guidelines on how to effectively navigate these obligations. Topics will include:
- An introduction to NPO Ethical and Legal Compliance
Due to the ever changing NPO ethical and legal landscape, NPOs are consistently challenged to maintain legitimacy and credibility. The inability to protect an organisation’s reputation could eventually affect the NPO’s sustainability. Every NPO role player, from the board, the CEO, managers and even volunteers, has a role to play in protecting the NPOs reputation. In these discussions NPO role-players will be challenged to consider the importance of ethical and legal compliance. Consideration will also be given to adopting a systematic approach in complying with the various ethical and legal standards.
- An overview of the various Governance Codes affecting NPOs
The NPO Code;
The Independent Code; and
King IV Code of Corporate Governance.
- An overview of the basic laws governing NPOs
Different laws apply to different NPOs because of the law that they are established under as well as their mission, operational activities, the administrative burden that they carry given the sector that they work in or stage of their development, and how they obtain resources. These various laws impose different obligations and hold different consequences to NPOs. Staff, Managers and Board members have to identify the legal obligations that their NPO ought to comply with and the consequences of non-compliance.
- An update on developments on specific laws
The Labour Laws and Volunteerism;
The Consumer Protection Act No. 68 of 2008; and
The Protection of Personal Information Act No. 4 of 2013
