Yes, you’re an intern — but you do have rights?

Last Updated on

Intern is classed as a worker. Workers are entitled to certain employment rights, including:

  • The right to access to amenities (like toilets or a lunch room).
  • The right to annual leave, sick leave and holiday pay.
  • The right to public holidays.
  • The right to join a union.
  • You should receive proper training.
  • You shouldn’t be treated differently because you’re an apprentice, trainee or intern.
  • You should get paid for time you spend at training.
  • You must receive a pay slip to cover full details of the pay for each pay period.
  • Being provided with any equipment or clothing you need for work.
  • Not being expected to work overtime.
  • The right to a safe and healthy work environment.

You should be proactive, take initiative and know what your rights are. You have to be your own advocate
