Government says it is cracking down on unpaid internships


HMRC has launched a crackdown on unpaid internships amid fears companies are failing to change their practices. The government said that over the last three months it had warned over 500 companies and set up enforcement teams to tackle repeat offenders. HMRC is expected to target sectors such as media, the performing arts and law and accountancy firms and issue guidance to employers. But campaigners say a change in the law is needed to make it easier to report unpaid internships and to introduce tougher penalties for those found breaking the law.
