Volunteering and internships: employment law issues

A note exploring the legal and practical employment law issues relevant to volunteering and internships (or work experience). The note considers the status of volunteers and interns and whether organisations have any legal obligations towards them (including whether they need to be paid the national minimum wage). It also considers the implications for employers whose employees volunteer in other organisations.
