February 2017 Youth Employment 101
Work experience for students is a key predictor in long-term attachment to the workforce as an adult. Additionally, more and more students with disabilities are needing to engage in work experiences prior to graduation. Sadly, many educators and para-professionals are placing students in internships that are not paid and are against labor laws. According to the Department of Labor, ignorance of the laws and rules is not an excuse. So join us to find out how you can continue to have your students engage in internships AND be in compliance.
At the conclusion of this session learners will be able to:
¤ Identify whether an internship / work experience should be paid or not paid;
¤ The circumstances under which students can engage in unpaid experiences in for profit businesses; and,
¤ Identify who is liable during an internship or work experience.
