PROVIDENCE (April 3, 2014) – The Rhode Island Small Business Journal published in its most recent issue an article by Matt Plain and Kristen Whittle as part of their “Personnel Practices” employment law series.
In their most recent article, Plain and Whittle address employment law issues related to volunteer workers under federal and Rhode Island law.
“In order to ensure that volunteers are not considered ‘employees’ subject to federal and state wage and hour requirements,” write Plain and Whittle, “employers should be aware of the applicable provisions of the [Fair Labor Standards Act] and applicable Rhode Island law.”
“Personnel Practices” – published monthly – targets employment law topics that employers confront regularly.
