Tougher standard to hire unpaid interns in New York

When employees go to work they expect to be paid -- in most situations. In today's economy, some workers have taken unpaid internships in order to gain experience and hopefully land a paying job in the future. These positions are particularly popular in media and journalism jobs. However, these unpaid internships have led to wage-and-hour disputes in New York, and a court case that has forced employers across the country to examine their internship policies.

In New York, employees do not work for free, even if many employers wish they did. Everyone needs to make a living and employment laws define exactly how much an employee must make per hour.

In order to be more appealing to potential employees, many places of business offer their employees benefits. These employee benefits have become an important part of many New Yorkers lives and provide things like healthcare and retirement benefits.
