Special Note Regarding Unpaid Internships
- Reference the FLSA Fact Sheet #71 to see if the intern must be paid the minimum wage and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act for the services that they provide to “for-profit” private sector employers.
- Consider the socioeconomic background of interns that cannot afford to accept an unpaid internship. We hope that you will consider providing opportunities to all students and not just those that have the money to take unpaid positions.
