WEBINAR: Please join us for this encore presentation on August 6th @ 1:00pm ET
Internships have become a rite of passage for college and university students. They are often viewed as the gateway to admission into more prestigious graduate schools and more financially rewarding employment. Many institutions of higher learning have incorporated internships into their undergraduate curriculum.
For generations, internships have provided students with practical experiences and enhanced the educational process, while providing employer with a talented pool of skilled and educated candidates for future employment. The explosion of student internships over the last 10 years, 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 light of recent challenges to internship programs by federal and state departments of labor and the plaintiff’s bar, there is a great deal of confusion regarding the obligations in setting up and managing internship programs. Many employers and institutions of higher learning have begun questioning if internship programs are still feasible in today’s ever-increasingly litigious environment. This presentation will focus on best-practices for both employers and university administrators for facilitating internships and experiential education.
