Higher Education Internship Legal Update Webinar: April 15, 2014 from 1-3p.m. , Morris Conference Center Room 130. Sponsored by the Career Development Center
In light of recent challenges to internship programs by federal and state departments of labor and the plaintiff’s bar, employers are continuing to be confused by their obligations in setting up and managing these programs.
Many colleges, universities and employers have begun questioning if internship programs, whether paid or unpaid, are still feasible in today’s ever-increasingly litigious environment. This webinar will explore employment law issues and best practices for colleges and universities as well as employers that host or are considering hosting student interns and internship programs, including:
- The Millennial Intern – What is it that students want today?
- To pay or not to pay – the benefits and pitfalls of compensating your interns
- Protecting your organization with internship agreements
- Strategies to avoid joint liability with sponsoring educational institutions
- Avoiding liability for workplace torts
- The current lawsuits you’ve read about in the news and what they really mean for the future of internships.
- Some of the most common areas of liability for companies – and colleges…and how to avoid them!
- LIVE Q&A and more…
Slides and a video recording of the session will be available after the webinar. Attendees will have the ability to interact in a LIVE Q&A with Joanne Seltzer from Jackson Lewis, LLP.

A large project involving the third floor of Milne Library will begin May 19, the Monday after Commencement. The existing masonry “panels” on the third floor exterior will be replaced with prefabricated insulated metal panels and glazing, giving the library a fresh look and significantly improved energy efficiency. In addition, the third-floor spaces will be renovated to increase and improve multi-purpose learning spaces.
The entire third floor will be a construction zone and unavailable to the campus community during construction, which will occur from mid-May to mid-August. The sub-basement, basement, first and second floors will remain open. Access to the building during this time will be determined by the work schedule, and will be posted on the site each day. Provisions have been made to move occupants of the third floor to other locations during the construction.
