The U.S. Department of Labor employs a six-part test in deciding whether an individual is an employee and should be paid hourly wages and overtime or an intern who does not need to be paid. The six factors are:
1. The individual receives training in his internship that is similar to trainn that would be received in a vocational school.
2. The training is predominanntly for hte benefit of the individual rather than the employer.
3. The individual displaces regular employees or works under their close observation.
4. The employer derives an immediate advantage from the activities of the individual.
5. The individual is guaranteed a job at the conclusion of the training period.
6. The employer and the individual understand that the individual is not entitled to wages for the time spent in training.
