    Great, that is what I was thinking. I knew their was generally a "cooling off" period. Thank you!

    We generally don't let former employees return to a previous department for at least six months, if not longer. Definitely too much of a temptation to step back into former duties.

    Thank you all for the advice and shares! Yes, our organization is non-profit.

    Hi Chris

    It may also depend if your organization is non-profit.  I found the following google search to be helpful:  

     Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for non-profit organizations

    I would suggest that they volunteer for a while in a different area.  It is hard for some to let go of the reins and could be critical of the new person etc.  Some employe to volunteer, understand this and some do not.  It is a hard call especially if they are a great employee, know what is going on but you have to be fair to your new employee and give them a chance with out a possible critical hand to start.  

    Good luck!

    Hi everyone, I have a current employee, that may be resigning their current position in one of our gift shops. they would like to stay involved and asked if they could come back as a volunteer in that same shop. My question is, is this permissible? Labor laws? thoughts!? thanks ALL!
