No, Volt Switch cannot hit Ground types, or any Pokémon with an electric immunity (ex. via Lightning Rod). Additionally, if Volt Switch hits an immune target, the user will not switch out.

If it hits a focus sash Shedinja with wonder guard somehow suppressed, then it won't do damage, but the user will still switch out.
Good point. Edited
