In 2014, new internship guidelines were issued by the US Department of Labor. Are you aware of the changes? Ignorance can be costly. Companies have been successfully sued by their former interns in recent years. Don’t let this happen to you.
I also encourage not to let the guidelines scare you away from welcoming interns into your business. Offering a high quality internship program is an excellent way to increase your productivity and profits without skyrocketing your expenses. With the right training and support, interns can become valuable members of your team. An internship program is also a great way to give back to your community by teaching and mentoring a new generation of employees and entrepreneurs.
Packaged For Success has developed a 10 step internship program development system which can be adapted to meet the unique needs of businesses and nonprofit organizations.
