With so many people out of work and a renewed focus on volunteerism as a way to enhance a resume and increase chances of finding new employment, some may wonder if volunteer work can jeopardize an individual's unemployment benefits. The State Department of New York has clear guidelines outlining when volunteer work may be in conflict with the colletion of benefits. Responsible Volunteer Managers should educate themselves on these guidelines.
