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).
