Volunteer at a private non-profit Club
I am a clerical worker for a non-profit private club and hate the way the lunch room looks. I was going to volunteer to come in on a Saturday and paint it. My employer appreciated the idea that I wanted to make it better, but insisted that I be on the clock. I understand, since I am an employee, but my husband is coming to help me and they are insisting that the law prohibits him from volunteering. He is a retired colonel, and is not in any way associated with my employer. He does not want to be paid. Does he have an option to volunteer?
