 No. Individuals who volunteer their services to a public agency like state, parish, city or county 
government in an emergency capacity are not considered employees due compensation under the Fair 
Labor Standards Act (FLSA) if they: 
●Perform such services for civic, charitable or humanitarian reasons without promise, 
expectation, or receipt of compensation.  
●Offer their services freely and without coercion, direct or implied 
●Are not otherwise employed by the same public agency to perform the same services as those 
for which they propose to volunteer.
