New Year, New Settlement: Another Big Payout Over Unpaid Interns
An article by Partner John Thompson was published on TLNT.com.
John’s article entitled “New Year, New Settlement: Another Big Payout Over Unpaid Interns,” was posted on January 16, 2014.
He wrote about high-profile lawsuits by unpaid or allegedly underpaid interns under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage-hour laws.
One of them was filed last May against Elite Model Management Corporation under the FLSA and similar New York state laws.
