volunteers - are their stipulations to how much someone can do this wout payment?

We are a private non-profit organization that looks for volunteers to help out as much as possible. Are there any current laws or other guidlines in Ohio stating how much somneone can volunteer their time without the facility having to put them on some type of payroll? Our president is looking at a volunteer to help get our volunteer program up and running more effeciently.

In the non-profit sector there is probably a little more tolerance on having multi-levels of volunteers. I cannot give you specific limits without knowing a lot more. The Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division has issued extensive regulations which should define "volunteer" and unpaid internships in a manner that is generally understandable. You will have to take yourself through the rules.
