Why does my business need an Unpaid Internship Agreement Template?

Unpaid internships and work experience are vital opportunities to allow a business to assess the performance and fit of interns before committing to hiring. Internships are also beneficial to interns as they are offered valuable work experience.

Internships can vary in lengths from a few days to a few months depending on the circumstances. It is important to note however, that an intern can remain unpaid if there is no employment relationship in place. Typically, unpaid work experience is acceptable when interns are a student or on vocational placement.

Whether there is an employment relationship in place depends on several factors. One of the most critical factors is whether the engagement creates an employment contract.

Although there is no certainty that implementing an Unpaid Internship Deed will guarantee that the arrangement does not create an employment contract, it is a critical document which can be used as evidence of the intention to engage the individual as an intern.

An Unpaid Internship Deed also considers several of the indicators of an employment relationship and aims to address how the internship will provide the greater benefit to the intern by improving their skills and knowledge and providing valuable learning opportunities.

An Unpaid Internship Deed is also important to clarify the rights and responsibilities of your business and the intern and allows your intern to be aware of the terms of their engagement with your business.

If you or your business is currently engaging or intends to engage interns on an unpaid basis, we recommend purchasing Business Kitz Unpaid Internship Deed.
