HR 10.0 - Volunteer Management Policy :


DESCRIPTION
It is the policy of Edmonds Community College to provide volunteer opportunities and to provide educationally-related work assignments for student volunteers and interns. While performing their assigned duties, a college volunteer is an agent of the college; therefore, college volunteers must abide by all college policies that govern conduct and standards, safety requirements, financial responsibility, and confidentiality.

Individuals shall be considered volunteers only when their services are offered freely and without pressure of coercion, direct or implied, from the college. All volunteer opportunities must be entered into without promise or expectation of compensation, future employment, or other tangible benefit. Volunteers do not supplant college employees.

College volunteers are not considered employees for any purpose and are not covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Volunteers are not eligible for any college benefits and are not covered under the college Workers’ Compensation Insurance and Unemployment Compensation Insurance programs except for reimbursement of expenses. In the event of a change in status from a volunteer position to a paid position, no credit will be given to a former volunteer for time spent in a non-remunerative (i.e. non-pay) status with respect to seniority, benefit, or retirement programs.

Edmonds Community College employees may volunteer their services to Edmonds Community College as long as they are not volunteering to do work that they would normally do as a paid employee. To volunteer legally for their own employer, public employees must perform a service that is distinctly different from their ordinary work activities.
