Avoiding and Defending Against Employee Discrimination Claims

When independent schools are involved in litigation, it costs them more than just dollars — schools can lose valuable time, resources and even their reputation. Though not always possible, the easiest way to defend against claims is to avoid them altogether. Join an independent school legal expert who will use real-world case studies to share pragmatic methods to avoid litigation. Prepare your school to learn when to settle, when to mediate and how to defend vigorously.

Learning Objective: Participants will learn the anatomy of a litigation, when to settle, when to mediate and how and when to defend vigorously.

UBIT: Do You Still Owe Tax as a Tax-Exempt Organization?

As a not-for-profit entity, most independent schools are exempt from income tax. However, that doesn’t mean that they’re exempt from all taxes. Certain revenue-generating activities that are not substantially related to the school’s mission may be subject to unrelated business income tax (UBIT). How does a school determine which activities fall under this purview? Tax experts will outline which factors to consider when determining if an activity produces unrelated business income. Hear common examples and exclusions of unrelated trade or business activities in schools and review filing requirements.

Learning Objective: Participants will learn how to recognize unrelated business income and understand its implications for both a school’s businesses and investment activities, as well as how to determine exclusions, modifications and exceptions to unrelated business income. Participants will learn to recognize the rules for deducting expenses in determining unrelated business taxable income as well as filing requirements.
