Paying interns: what you need to know

The IPA has published an updated legal guidance note around the subject of paying interns. This follows a series of recently issued Regulations, guidance notes and policies from HMRC and the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS).


The guidance note is a reminder of what constitutes work experience and an internship and when you are obliged to pay for them, and covers things to consider when designing an internship scheme. It also highlights the key recommendations from the BIS guidance and Regulations.

Read the full IPA guidance note.
