National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE)
We recommend that your intern program be based on these four over arching premises:
- To provide meaningful work experience for the student and give the student structured learning experiences where they apply knowledge gained in the classroom;
- To guide students' educational development through mentoring;
- To strengthen school relationships;
- To treat interns as valuable members of your organization.
Federal Guidelines for Determining Whether a Student Should Be Paid
Students are considered employees and their work covered by the Fair Labor Standards Acts if:
- They provide essential services to the employer; or
- They are working in a position where someone is normally paid; or
- There is a history of paying someone to do the same or similar work; or
- Other people are currently paid for the same or similar work.
- The experience is similar to that which would be given in a vocational program;
- The experience is primarily for the benefit of the student (this is accomplished if the internship is part of a school curriculum);
- The student does not displace other employees and works under close supervision;
- The organization derives no immediate advantage from the student's activities and on occasion may be impeded;
- The student is not entitled to a job with the organization at the completion of the internship or training; and
- The student and organization understand that the student is not entitled to wages or any other form of compensation for the training.
Academic institutions and sponsoring organizations are cautioned, however, that the trend at the Department of Labor is to subject internship arrangements to increasingly close scrutiny.
The Department of Labor (DOL) has stepped up investigations of organizations using unpaid interns, and has begun to fine organizations who use students interns to do the work of regular employees without paying them in accordance with Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requirements.*
