When Volunteering is NOT Volunteering

Admittedly, the rules around volunteering are clear and the company was not a non-profit making company BUT why didn't the JC+ advice the young man of this when he asked. They knew the company; they sent him there in the first place. And the reason the company didn't need to employ someone to do the job was because JC+ provided jobseekers on work placements!
