It's Your Business - Chapter 2 Legal Issues

As a Director you need to be aware of the obligations and responsibilities that you have accepted in regard to the legal issues that may arise within your organisation. The aim of this chapter is to provide background information on legal issues to support Directors in their governance role. It provides you with a practical approach to understanding and implementing policies to safeguard your organisation against the risks associated with running a non-government organisation.

Policy Checklists are included at the end of this chapter. They can be copied and worked through by your entire Board on an annual basis, or as required.
