Helping Employers Work Within The New Internship Guidelines
October 28th @ 1:00pm ET.
Earlier this summer, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals issued significant pro-employer decisions in regards to the legal ramifications of internships.  In the cases brought before the court, the plaintiffs – unpaid interns – alleged that they should have been classified as employees and paid for their time.  As a result, they brought claims for, among other things, unpaid wages on a class-wide basis.On appeal in both cases, the Second Circuit adopted a balancing standard called the “primary beneficiary test” and held that district courts should use this test when analyzing whether an individual should have been classified as an intern or an employee. So what does this mean for you, your students and employer partners?
