Document Overview

An Internship Agreement is essential in setting out the terms of the internship relationship. It states the role of the intern, along with his/her responsibilities, duties and obligations. Further, having an Internship Agreement is important to protect your interests. It ensures that all sensitive information is kept confidential, and that the relationship is steered clear from being an employment relationship.

Use this Internship Agreement if:

  • You are hiring an unpaid intern for your business.

How do I make my Internship Agreement legally binding?

An Internship Agreement acts likes a contract between the business and unpaid intern. The intern would sign the agreement, making it a legally binding document.

Does an Internship Agreement cover confidentiality and intellectual property?

Yes. The agreement would cover any intellectual property or confidential materials the business wishes to protect.

Do interns require insurance?

Workers compensation does not cover interns as interns are not employees. Often the business would have insurance which covers both employees and interns in cases of workplace injuries. However, it is recommended that interns get their own insurance if they wish to do so.

What’s the difference between an intern and an employee?

An internship is a temporary position with an emphasis on training and work experience and can be either paid or unpaid. An employee works for the business on either a full-time, part-time, casual or contract basis and is paid for their work.

The general rule to consider is who is getting the most benefit out of the working arrangement. Interns are generally do more activities as part of learning experience and skill development. If the organisation is receiving the greater benefit then the worker is more likely to be considered an employee rather than an intern.

How long is an Internship Agreement effective for?

The Internship Agreement is effective for the duration of the internship. However, if it contains a confidentiality clause, the intern may need to comply with the agreement until the information is no longer confidential.
