Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Internships are considered a critical aspect of professional education, and it can be a big benefit to a business to hire interns. You don't have to pay these workers and they are eager to learn.
But the more benefit an unpaid intern is to a business, the more likely it is that you should be paying this person for the work they do. There have been numerous intern lawsuits stemming from these unpaid arrangements, and because they are not employees, interns come with their own liability issues. Here are three.
Even very big lucrative businesses hire unpaid interns. They expect them to do a lot of work and do it eagerly in the hope of cultivating industry connections, getting recommendations and referrals for jobs, and gaining experience. But these businesses are not always carefully considering their obligations to interns and risk legal trouble as a result.
If you're considering hiring interns, or have questions about any other aspect of business operations, speak to a lawyer. Consult with counsel. Get guidance.
