At the moment, administrative, local, and governmental guidelines make up the majority of the laws governing volunteers and their volunteer work in China. No comprehensive national laws protecting the rights and interests of volunteers have been developed. In real-world situations, there is a distinction between the trial of unclear responsibility allocation and unclear determination of the facts of the volunteer relationship when volunteers are infringed upon during the course of volunteering or infringed upon by others. In terms of the legal status of volunteer work, there are three different perspectives: “entrusted relationship,” “unpaid assistant,” and uncaused management. The author examined 167 cases of disagreements affecting the rights and interests of volunteer work and discovered that they can be broadly classified into two categories: “labor relations” and “tort disputes”, and analyzed the factors of determination in detail. The following recommendations are offered in light of the current situation, which makes it difficult to determine who bears responsibility in disputes regarding the rights and interests of volunteer services and the details of volunteer relations: A uniform volunteer management law should be introduced, the multi-dispute resolution process should be improved, and legal education should be conducted to raise the standard of volunteer services. “Conduct general education and increase public understanding of the legal system.”
