(A)   Any person under city jurisdiction confined in jail may be required by the police chief to labor on the streets, public safety buildings and grounds, vehicles and other property or public works of the city situated within the county. The police chief may establish a "trustee system" to regulate the conduct of working prisoners and may promulgate reasonable rules and regulations for the purpose.
   (B)   To assist in the sentencing and rehabilitation of petty offenders, the city may accept the services performed by misdemeanant summary probationers who are assigned by the coordinator of the county's probation-work program to work upon city property within the county.
   (C)   The term “services,” as used in this subsection, includes clerical services, menial labor and unskilled labor performed voluntarily and without right of discipline reserved to the city. The services performed by summary probationers and accepted by the city shall be:
      (1)   Without compensation in any form from the city;
      (2)   Casual, and shall not impinge substantially upon regular duties performed by city employees;
      (3)   Undertaken concurrently or within the usual working shifts assigned to city employees; or
      (4)   Rendered at tasks requiring, if at all, simple tools operated solely by human energy.
   (D)   No prisoner or probationer used or assigned to labor or perform services in accordance with this section shall be considered an employee of, or to be employed by, the city or any city department; nor shall any such prisoner or probationer be covered by any of the provisions of the workers' compensation law of the State or be entitled to any benefits thereunder whether on behalf of himself/herself or that of any other person.
