Training Overview

Are your fall coaching contracts legal? Discover essential employment considerations.

As the school year and fall athletic season begin, evaluate your employment agreements with coaches. While schools rely heavily on coaches to train student-athletes, there are legal considerations for these volunteers and employees.

You must address issues related to compensation, wage and hour obligations, overtime, contracts, pay equity, evaluations, and termination. Board policies, administrative regulations, employee handbook provisions, individual contracts, laws, and constitutional requirements all play significant roles in defining the relationship.
