Conde Nast Scraps Intern Program Amid Lawsuit

Magazine publisher Conde Nast is getting rid of its internship program after being accused of underpaying and overworking its interns.

Los Angeles Times reports[1] that the publisher is no longer hiring interns after two interns sued the company in June for failing to pay them minimum wage for their summer jobs. Conde Nast — which is responsible for magazines such as the New Yorker and Vogue – said that the program has been cancelled and no other details were offered.

The lawsuit follows a series of recent suits from interns suing media companies for failing to pay them minimum wage as mandated by the law.
