  • You're working as an intern for a big company and you're working completely unpaid. The

  • question is should you be? My name is Adam Gonnelli and my firm handles cases were interns

  • aren't being paid what they're supposed to be paid. Now when people think of interns,

  • usually what they think of is a young person going in for college credit doing menial jobs

  • and learning about the business. And some of that is perfectly fine. What's not fine

  • is when the intern is actually doing a job that could be done by a minimum wage worker

  • isn't really learning much of anything and the employer is exploiting the intern, just

  • to get cheap labor. Now what we look at to determine whether an intern should be getting

  • paid is a couple of things. First, who's really benefiting? Is the intern there to learn?

  • Is the intern there to pick up job skills? Or is it really just a case of the employer

  • getting work for free? Look at it this way: if you can think of it as the intern coming

  • in and displacing a minimum wage worker (let's say all you do is you run and get coffee and

  • you do different errands, you do routine paperwork, you're standing at the copy machine) none

  • of those things are teaching the intern anything and those are all jobs that can be done by

  • a minimum wage workers. In those circumstances, the interns should be getting paid. Another

  • factor to consider is who's advantage is having this job? Does the advantage go to the intern

  • where they're learning things? They're learning about the business, picking up valuable skills?

  • Or is the advantage all to the employer who gets an employee who's working for nothing?

  • Now in some cases, even having the intern around may actually cost the employer something

  • in the short term. The employer may have to take time off to teach the intern things,

  • the employer may have to make some accommodations to have the intern around, the intern may

  • need their own office, time may be taken from some of the senior people to talk to the intern,

  • give the intern learning tasks and so forth. All those things are situations where you

  • have a genuine internship. Another issue that you look at is whether the internship necessarily

  • leads to a job or is it something that could be the equivalent for college credit (like

  • being in a class)? If you're in a classroom, you don't expect necessarily to walk out and

  • get a job (especially true these days). Similarly, if you're an intern and there's no guarantee

  • of a job at the end of the internship that's another factor that may mean this a genuine

  • internship and not a case in where the intern needs to get bad. In short the closer the

  • internship is something you get in a college environment or a class room; the more likely

  • it is that it's a genuine internship. The closer it is to a minimum wage job, the more

  • likely it is that the intern should be getting paid. Now why might you need to know this

  • information? If you're an intern and you're putting in a lot of hours, maybe you should

  • be getting paid. I'm Adam Gonnelli and my firm handles cases like this. Thanks for watching

  • and have a great day!
