Debating Internships: The Value of Unpaid Work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When Eric Glatt sued Fox Searchlight Pictures and won, the media took notice. More than a dozen lawsuits quickly followed from disgruntled interns at other companies. Some employers have responded by cancelling their internship programs. What is the true value of unpaid work?
We’ll debate the issue from three perspectives: Intern, Employer, and a major University. Our featured employer has hired over 200 interns since 1998. Our University Career Services expert works with 1000s of computer science students and 100s of employers each year. Our former Intern worked in the film industry, and is now an advocate working to end exploitative unpaid internships.
Our experts will discuss changing ideas, recent labor rulings, and company best practices surrounding internships. We welcome a lively debate & Q&A!
