When onboarding new employees, nonprofit organizations should be aware of the numerous federal and local law requirements. These include making sure the employee is eligible to work in the US by completing the Form I-9 employment eligibility verification form. This is especially important, given the federal government’s increased emphasis on I-9 compliance. It is equally important to make sure your nonprofit is complying with the requirements of the D.C. Wage Theft Prevention Act, including providing employees with the Notice of Hire Form which, under D.C. law, an employer must provide all new hires. Finally, we will review the rules that govern when a new employee must be allowed to participate in the employer’s benefit plans.
