It has been widely reported that NOW magazine, an auction house and an international media corporation have become the latest organisations to pay out settlements to former interns who demanded to receive the national minimum wage. So far, settlements have been made without recourse to the courts. However, the government has been warning for some time now that most interns who provide work personally are probably workers and should therefore receive the national minimum wage. This would not apply to interns who only observe or shadow employees without undertaking work themselves. However, the reality of the relationships are still capable of being different in individual businesses.
