Volunteers

Volunteer appointments without salary are to be utilized when an individual volunteers his/her assistance or services directly and under the supervision of the University without promise or expectation of compensation.

Department Responsibilities: 
Department should first determine the duties to be performed and determine if the volunteer is 18 or over.  Note: Minors (under the age of 18) require additional reviews, approvals, and parental permission.

  • Review the need for a volunteer/without salary employee.
  • Contact your department's Employment Consultant/Recruiter to discuss the circumstances and nature of the volunteer appointment and/or to identify potential interested candidates.
  • Have the volunteer complete the Oath and Patent Form. Keep this form in your department's personnel file.
  • Complete the Workers Compensation form entitled Volunteer Information Record. Keep this form in your department's personnel file.
  • In the event of a claim, Workers' Compensation will contact your department for the documentation.  

Employment Consultant/Recruiter Responsibilities:

  • Your department's Employment Consultant/Recruiter will respond to any inquiries and discuss the appropriateness of duties that may be performed by the volunteer.
