Registration Fee: $99 for Higher Education Partners / $129 for Employer Partners
Internships have become a critical necessity for college and university students as they transition to the world of work. Many institutions of higher learning have incorporated internships into their undergraduate curriculum over the past few years. These internships provide students with practical experience and enhance the educational process. The explosion of student internships, closely followed by an equally explosive number of lawsuits brought by interns against their sponsoring companies, however, has created a perilous legal condition for both employers and educational institutions who sponsor or host internship programs.
In this exclusive live webcast, we will discuss employment law issues for organizations that host interns and specific issues that higher education professionals need to be aware of. During this presentation we will focus primarily on federal employment law issues, but will provide references to state law where applicable. Furthermore, we will highlight potential issues that organizations should be aware of and how they should structure their internship programs to decrease the potential likelihood for violating federal or state employment laws. This presentation will examine the conflict among courts and governmental agencies regarding the applicable test to determine whether an intern is, in fact, an employee, eligible to receive the protections afforded him or her under federal, state and local laws. Finally, we will also examine the applicable laws and DOL standards regarding remote work, as more and more companies and organizations have moved their internship programs online in responce to COVID-19.
