Volunteer hours

Why Do Volunteers Need to Report Hours in This System?

We at WSU Extension could not have an educational impact in local communities without the work done by volunteers. For this we thank you very much! So why do we ask you to do even more for us and report the details of your work? Well, both WSU and the State of Washington look after the well-being of volunteers by requiring workers’ compensation insurance for every volunteer. This pays for medical treatment in the event that you are injured while working as a volunteer. Washington State law requires that all volunteers working in support of WSU programs are covered by worker compensation insurance. Volunteers, please remember to keep your volunteer hours updated by logging hours monthly. Logging your hours ensures that you are covered by WSU’s liability insurance while you are doing volunteer work.
