I really shouldn't be starting in this... *g*
Since volunteers serve at the discretion of the chartered institution and
the local council, could it be held that these volunteers _are_ "hired" and
are "employees" of the BSA in a legal sense? Then the anti-discrimination
laws would apply to the BSA???
Are there any precedents along the above line of reasoning?
Any legal experts?
