Employers May Pay Dearly For Their Unpaid Internships
Law360, New York (December 5, 2014, 11:01 AM EST) -- In a tight job market, many students turn to unpaid internships to get their feet in the business door and gain real-world job experience for light resumes. At first blush, it seems like a fine concept: the student gains much-needed resume filler and makes networking connections while the employer enjoys free labor. In a weak economy with lean company budgets and fierce job competition, this is a win-win situation, right?
Not so, according to some federal courts and the U.S. Department of Labor.
