Is it legal to give an employee salary to a charity? Posted on August 12, 2011

Potential Employee wants company to donate to charity in lieu of salary: I recently made a job offer to a potential employee for a management position at our California S-Corp. Upon receiving the offer, he explained that he is willing to accept the offer, but only as a volunteer with the caveat that the gross amount he would normally receive in compensation be given by our company to a large and well-known non-profit charity. He explained that he is not willing to accept any compensation for his time. Is it legal to allow this person to perform work as a volunteer for us and make the donation to the charity?Thank you!
