Litigation Over Unpaid Internships Under the FLSA Heats Up

ScalesThanks to friend of the blog, David Yamada (Suffolk) for brining to our attention been the emerging litigation over unpaid internships during the past year.  Apparently, such litigation is starting to heat up.   

For a bit more background on what's been going on with this issue, here's a blog post David wrote back in May on the New Workplace blog (which you should  check out generally).

Paul, thank you! I'm delighted that this issue appears to be enjoying its coming out party this year. The litigation already is encouraging some internship employers to offer compensation, and that will create more opportunities for folks who otherwise cannot afford to pursue them.
