First of all this Bill is very unlikely to become law. Private Members Bills almost never become law. What I more likely is that the government may seek to intrudce some legislation in a future bill that places restrictions on unpaid internships. Given the likely legislative logjam caused by Brexit this could takse some time.

However, if Mr Shelbrooke’s Bill did become law then whilst it isn’t intended to apply to charities it could be used to do so as I outline in my article. In that situation, yes, “charities have to pay for the services of interns the minimum wage, and not just reimburse on travel and lunch expenses as most currently do”.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
