You should be paid by check (not cash) for the hours that you actually worked. (Exceptions: Work such as babysitting, lawn work, etc.)
You cannot have transportation to and from work provided by your employer unless transportation is provided to all employees.
Your employer cannot provide you with any benefit or privilege that is not provided to all employees (e.g., meals, cars, entertainment at home, vacation trips, water skiing, etc.).

In addition, the representative is permitted to provide you with transportation for the sole purpose of attending this occasional home meal.
You can be employed by a community agency or club to teach sport skills as long as you have other duties and responsibilities.
