The Internship: Ensuring Proper Classification and Reducing Litigation Risk (Free Webinar, 7/13/13)

by Submitted Posting on June 7, 2013

Particularly in the summertime, many employers host unpaid internship programs to give students valuable professional experience and build meaningful connections with educational institutions. However, employers that use interns in place of regular employees or otherwise depart from the requirements of federal wage laws or the Department of Labor Guidelines may face substantial legal risk. PLC is offering a free webinar on these issues.

Join Practical Law for a free 75-minute webinar in which Terence P. McCourt, Chairman of Greenberg Traurig’s Boston Labor and Employment Practice Group, and Greenberg Traurig Labor and Employment Attorney Jack Gearan explain how to create a lawful internship program and steer clear of related legal risks.

In this program, attendees will learn:

Key factors the Department of Labor analyzes to determine proper classification.

How best to structure a legally compliant internship program.

Litigation trends and real world examples of internship pitfalls.

From understanding the legal landscape to proper crafting of an internship program, this webinar will help employers avoid legal risks.

Presenters:

Terence P. McCourt, Managing Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig LLP

Jack Gearan, Labor and Employment Attorney, Greenberg Traurig LLP

Kate Bally, Co- Head Editor, Practical Law Labor & Employment
