Get an Internship Contract drafted or reviewed by our specialist lawyers
Having interns as part of your business can be a great way to bring in new energy and talent to your team. It is important to ensure that you comply with legislation that governs internships and unpaid work.
Issues commonly arise around the grey areas between “intern” and “employee.” An internship is a temporary position, either paid or voluntary, that provides training and experience. The role can be full-time, part-time, voluntary, casual, or çontract. Your business need to ensure that voluntary interns are not deemed employees, and thereby owed entitlements under the National Employee Standards (NES).
Internship Contracts are essential to in clearly defining the relationship as not constituting that of employer / employee. Internship Contracts should outline the role of the intern, their responsibilities and duties. They should define issues of confidentiality in the business, and ownership of intellectual property.
Internship Contracts are effective for the duration of the internship, with confidentiality clauses lasting beyond the duration.
