Unpaid Internship FLSA Compliance

Lantana Games prides itself on being a studio where students can learn and gain valuable skills for the game industry and beyond. We comply with all six mandatory FLSA requirements for unpaid internships, including:

  • The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment;
  • The internship experience is for the benefit of the intern;
  • The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff;
  • The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern; and on occasion its operations may actually be impeded;
  • The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship; and
  • The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship.

You can learn more about FLSA requirements for internships at the Department of Labor website.
