received little educational training in return. So therefore, they should be labeled and compensated as entry-level employees. 2. What had been the basis for the district court’s decision that Glatt and Footman were employees under the FLSA? Searchlight received the benefits of [the interns’] unpaid work, which otherwise would have required paid employees. The ruling cited the U.S. Department of Labor’s six legal criteria for unpaid internships. The guidelines say that unpaid internships should be “similar to training which would be given in an educational environment,” among other standards. Why did the appeals court reject that decision? They found the six criteria to be “too rigid” to apply in the case. A different standard should apply. The proper question is whether the intern or the employer is the primary beneficiary of the relationship. 3. Which criteria does the appeals court say should generally be used in deciding whether interns at for-profit firms are employees? The internship in the for-profit section must meet six criteria to qualify to be unpaid under federal minimum wage law. One is that the internship must benefit the intern: another is that the company must derive no “immediate advantage” from the intern’s work. 4.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
