Interns, and Volunteers, and Independent Contractors! (Oh, My!): Common Pitfalls in Wage and Hour Law

Nonprofits, like all companies, face a slew of challenges in navigating the modern workforce. Chief among these challenges are complying with all of the federal and state wage and hour laws — which govern everything from how much, how often, when, and how employees must be paid — to whether and when someone is properly treated as an employee, an independent contractor, an intern, or a volunteer. The laws themselves are complicated, confusing, and changing, and the slightest misstep can result in significant legal exposure, including private litigation, investigations and enforcement actions by government agencies, and unwanted negative publicity.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • Practical advice on properly classifying employees as exempt from overtime and how to calculate overtime rates
  • Tips on how to lawfully engage independent contractors or consultants, including a discussion of the key differences between employees and independent contractors
  • Challenges for nonprofit organizations with unpaid interns and volunteers
  • Best practices on how to minimize liability and take preventive action to avoid wage and hour violations


  • Joshua F. Alloy, Counsel, Labor and Employment, Arnold & Porter LLP
