I was wondering, the guidelines say with at least 10 employees (and/or volunteers woh wor an average of 20 or more hours a month)...my question, besides your list showed companies with 2 or 3 or 6 employees, do the volunteers have to work at the non-profit an average of 20 hours a month for all 12 months? or just key months? Maybe when a conference or class or some other event is going on...I would like to enter our organization but we only have 5 employees and we do have some volunteers that work 20hours a month, but it may not be every month. Thank you, Bill Prows

Bill,

Thanks for your question. If these volunteers are really part of the workplace team, familiar with your policies and, whether or not they work year-round, their average hours over the year add up up to about 220 hours per month/five hours per week, they can be included. We just don't want volunteers who are temporary or not really art of the team. The survey happens late April to June so they would need to be available then. They would participate in the survey except for the "Benefits and Compensation" section. Email me at if you have more questions or would like to be contacted next April.

The United States has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.
