      Reply to Beauty: If there was no agreement to pay her remuneration, she was arguably not an employee and will have difficulty claiming any relief at the CCMA.

      VOLUNTEER FORCED HERSELF TO VOLUNTEER AT OUR CENTRE. AND BECAUSE WE OPERATED FROM ZERO BUDGET AND WE DIDNT KNOW HOW THEY WOULD PERFORM AND WITH TIME WE REALISED SHE WAS PROBLEMATIC, WE CONTINUED CORRECTINGF HER AND WARNING HER THAT SHE IS NOT YET A VOLUNTEER, NOT SIGNED A MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT THEREFORE SHE CAN DO AS SHE WISH. DURING ONE ON ONE MEETING WITH STAFF SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE RUDE AND LEFT WITHOUT TALKING TO US TRYING TO RESOLVE THE MATTER BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO TALK AS A GROUP. NO0W SHE TOOK US TO CCMA FOR HAVING REQUETSED HER TO LEAVE THOUGH IT WAS FOR 2 DAYS AND REFUSED TO COME BACK AFTER SHE WASTOLD TO COME BACK

      Employers should refrain from employing voluntary workers, other wise they will be frustrated
