U.S. Department of Labor Clarifies when Interns Working at  For-Profit Employers Are Subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act
U.S. Department of Labor Clarifies when Interns Working at For-Profit Employers Are Subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act
On December 19, 2017, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit became the fourth federal appellate court expressly to reject the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) six-part test for determining whether interns and students are employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The DOL had previously published a six-part test in 2010. Under that test, an intern would be considered an employee unless all of the six factors were met. The Second Circuit was the first to reject the DOL’s test in 2015, opting for a non-exhaustive set of seven factors to consider in what it termed the “primary beneficiary test.”
