Scouts as Free labor

Recommended Posts

Not a service project, but might be a decent fundraiser opportunity if the landscaper pays the Scouts a fair wage.

 

But then it seems to me that the Scouts are not doing the work "as Scouts", they are doing it as employees, which may raise other issues depending on their age, state law, etc.

Depending on your lawyer's interpretation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, if the Landscaping Co. is having the Scouts do work for free that the company normally pays employees to do, those Scouts will be considered employees and are due a wage.
