HR Compliance Solutions for Nonprofits

Crafting compliance, not chaos — because hoping for the best isn't a strategy, precision is.

HR Compliance for Nonprofits in California

Navigating compliance as a nonprofit organization can be a wild ride.

Scaling your nonprofit requires more than just growth; it demands the creation of systems and structures that ensure compliance with workplace regulations. 

We understand the delicate balance between maintaining your unique culture and implementing the policies, handbooks, and new hire packets necessary for seamless operations.

With our specialized HR compliance solutions for nonprofits, we simplify the process, making it both accessible and affordable. Let us guide you in obtaining the essential products your organization needs to thrive, allowing you to focus on what truly matters – making a lasting impact on the causes you champion.

If you're a nonprofit organization operating within the state of California, here's how our compliance products can help you:

We have worked with all kinds of nonprofit organizations in California and within multiple industries. Wherever you are along your journey, we’ve seen it before and can make sure you have the key foundation pieces you need for success.

Our HR compliance solutions for nonprofits include:

Employee Handbooks & Workplace Policies

An employee handbook details policies and expectations to keep everyone on the same page.

We start from a clear and thorough, attorney-reviewed handbook which is customized and branded for your organization and create attorney-reviewed annual updates to help you stay compliant.

We can advise you on the policies your nonprofit needs based on your size, industry and location. We’ll ensure they are clear, useful, and attorney-approved.

New Hire and Termination / Separation Packets

Get off on the right foot with new hires by having a new hire packet with everything necessary for a compliant first day.

When the time comes for an employee to move on, voluntarily or otherwise, a termination or separation packet will give you confidence and offer protection during what can otherwise be a stressful transition.

Injury and Illness Prevention Program

An Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is a program that enables employers to proactively create a safer environment for their workers.

Many states, including California, require one. Even if yours doesn’t, it’s just a good idea. With our HR compliance services, we can help you get your IIPP up and running and support your ongoing safety training goals.

HR Function Assessment

You think you’re doing everything right, but are you? Where are your biggest exposures? Wouldn’t it be great to know and shore these up so you can sleep better?

We review the compliance aspects of the lifecycle of an employee including recruiting, onboarding, performance, payroll and compensation, classification, benefits, LOA process, all required documentation, separation, wage and hour issues, and much more. We’ll provide a prioritized summary report of our findings and suggestions for best practices.

Employee Engagement

Retention is a big deal – especially when recruiting is a challenge. Motivated, engaged employees are more likely to stay. Investing in your employees is investing in your nonprofit organization. We keep your employees learning and evolving so they grow with you. Here are a few ways we can help:

  • Leadership and Management Coaching
  • Stay Interviews
  • Employee Culture and Engagement Surveys
  • Succession Planning

Leaves of Absence

We can help you slog through the seemingly unending list of acronyms related to LOA’s (see what we did there?) From CFRA to FMLA, we can help with federal leaves, California leaves, San Francisco and other city-specific requirements. There is an incredible amount of documentation required for leaves of absence. We can provide the documentation with a repeatable process, and support Reasonable Accommodation requests as well.

Initial Consultation

It starts with listening well. We want to hear about where you and which HR resources you might need to keep your business moving forward. 



Based on our initial conversation, we’ll create a proposal outlining the resources we recommend creating. Together, we’ll come to an agreement about the work to be done and our plan of attack.



We’ll get to work building the documents, policies, and other resources we have agreed upon. When finished, we’ll deliver them to you and walk through how to get the most out of your investment.



Things change, in our culture, workplace practices, and in the law. Because we’re committed to your business’s success, we offer ongoing support to keep you up to date.
