Volunteers Alleging Employment Status Lose Title VII Case but Court Applies Vigorous Analysis First


Do your volunteers know they are not employees?

There are requests for volunteers from many different types of organizations - blood banks, homeless shelters, food pantries, parks, libraries, animal shelters. All of these offer an opportunity to serve others in a volunteering capacity. It's vital to make sure those that are volunteering understand that it is strictly a volunteer position and not a position of employment. Read this white paper to understand why a Title VII case was lost after a thorough investigation by the court.
