Class Action Litigation for Unpaid Interns or Underpaid Trainees
Fair Pay for Interns!!
Representing Exploited Workers across the United States
It’s the newest form of exploiting workers…as a college student or a recent graduate, you crave real life experience in your chosen profession. A company offers you just that…the opportunity to learn at the feet of successful professionals. However, because of the promise of educational benefit, and the expectation that you will spend most of your time learning, the company is offering it as an unpaid internship.
With a good faith belief in the benefit it will bring to your career, you accept it. Unfortunately, once you get there, you find that most or all of your time is spent doing menial tasks, such as making coffee or copies, filing documents, acting as a go-fer, or ferrying people from one place to another. After months on the job, you haven’t learned much and you haven’t earned anything.
