Discuss the below:
Read Juino v. Livingston Parish Fire District No.
Though the court was quite clear that simply identifying workers as volunteers is insufficient to prevent Title VII application, does the name by which an employer calls its workers matter at all? In other words, does it matter at all whether the employer calls its workers volunteers or employees, or is it completely irrelevant?
Of the factors considered critical by the court in reaching its conclusion, which seem more critical to a determination of employment status?
Can you think of any public policy reasons why Title VII should be interpreted or amended to require employers to consider some or all volunteer workers as employees?
