Please be aware that the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division has developed a six-factor test for determining whether workers at “for profit” companies are to be considered “interns” or “employees” under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). A fact sheet has been developed by the DOL to help you ascertain if positions should be considered internships or employment.
