What You'll Gain:

The laws are complicated to understand and the question is can anyone be classified as an intern, employee, volunteer or independent contractor? Miscategorizing any worker—including an intern—can result in fines and lawsuits, definitely things you want to avoid for your company. At the end of the day, the best option is to consult an employment lawyer if you have specific questions.
