Advice from Career Services and the Department of Labor

Beware of apparent job postings or “opportunities” you may see on websites, bulletin boards, and other locations that seem too good to be true, especially if it requires an initial “registration fee” or “initial investment” to be considered, and NEVER wire money to someone for an upfront fee. Check with the Better Business Bureau and the Attorney General's office in the state where the business or employer is located for more information. Just as you must be alert for email phishing scams and other dangers on the internet, you must also be aware of employment scams that prey on the unwary. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you have been scammed, contact the New York State Attorney General's office to report it.

If you believe you have been hired as unpaid interns unlawfully you do have legal recourse. Please be advised that a student's service as an intern for no wages may be a violation of the Labor Law by the employer, and upon the completion of the internship you can file a claim with the New York State Department of Labor, Division of Labor Standards. Be sure to keep copies of any materials that you produce so that there will be evidence for the division's investigation, including time sheets and a log of daily responsibilities requested of the employer.  For more information, contact the New York State Department of Labor, Division of Labor Standards, 75 Varick St., seventh floor, New York, NY, or call them at 212.775.3719.
