Managing Risks of Interns and Volunteers in New Hampshire

A young woman in a flannel shirt is weighing leafy green vegetables on a scale at a farmers market.

UNH Cooperative Extension collaborated with Farm Commons to produce this guide to explain the laws behind interns and volunteers. It also provides insights and strategies to help producers reduce liability risks related to interns and volunteers.

To facilitate the process, the hypothetical stories of farmers Amanda and Ralph are weaved in throughout. The guide will follow their decision-making process as they learn about the legal issues and begin to better understand their options for having interns and volunteers.
