Is Your Intern Program Legally Compliant?, by Lorman

Is Your Intern Program Legally Compliant? is brought to you by Lorman

Learn how to structure a compliant internship program that meets wage and hour guidelines.

For many years, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) used the six-factor test when determining whether an employee was legally considered an unpaid intern, such that the intern would not be subject to the wage and hour requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act. This changed at the beginning of 2018 when the DOL adopted the Second Circuit’s primary beneficiary test in a move allowing increased flexibility for employers and greater opportunity for unpaid interns to gain valuable industry experience. Employers that fail to follow the requirements to ensure an intern may properly be treated as an unpaid intern, rather than an employee who is entitled to minimum wages and overtime, can face costly wage and hour litigation. This content will discuss the seven factors that make up the primary beneficiary test and help you develop a lawful unpaid internship program. This material will also prepare you to administer an internship program by providing key considerations for all stages of the internship process.
