If your business is engaging interns, you’ll need an agreement between the intern and your company. An Internship Agreement is important to make sure that you’re covering all bases when you bring interns onboard.
As a business, having an Internship Agreement will protect your company’s confidential information, to ensure anything the intern creates at work will be assigned under the company’s intellectual property, and to ensure your intern agrees to follow your company’s work protocol.
Under the Fair Work Act, there are strict laws regarding internships to prevent businesses from exploiting interns. A good lawyer can advise you on what a ‘true internship’ is under the eyes of the law, ensuring you’re not violating any laws.
What Is Included?
The legal terms in an Internship Agreement will include clauses covering:
- Role/duties of the intern
- Intellectual property protections
- Wages (if any)
- Any other provisions and protections you’d like in the agreement or which your lawyer recommends
We can design an Internship Agreement that you can easily re-use for each new intern you bring on board, with a cover page you can fill in for each intern’s job specifics.
