Volunteers help you accomplish your mission with dedication, hard work, and long hours. They can simultaneously generate controversy and liability.
Your nonprofit’s volunteers may spread COVID-19, cause injuries, or take improper actions toward clients or employees. Amid the coronavirus pandemic and civil unrest, it is now more critical than ever to ensure your volunteers contribute positively to your cause without creating problems.
Your organization, and you personally, may be liable for negligently selecting, monitoring, or retaining volunteers who cause harm. Some disgruntled volunteers have successfully claimed that they were actually employees and are due wages, back pay, and benefits for two or three years under federal Fair Labor Standards Act requirements.
