NY Post – It’s bad enough that unpaid interns can’t earn wages — but now a federal judge has ruled they’re not even protected from being groped by their bosses. Manhattan federal Judge Kevin Castel determined that Lihuan Wang, a former intern at Phoenix Satellite Television US, couldn’t bring a sex-harassment claim against the Chinese-language broadcasting company and her former supervisor there because unpaid interns aren’t employees — so they’re not covered by the city’s Human Rights Law. Castel also pointed out that the City Council has had various opportunities to amend the law to protect interns, but has failed to do so. His ruling came even as there’s been a groundswell of interns nationwide suing employers, such as Condé Nast and online gossip site Gawker, to be paid for their work. Wang, who filed the lawsuit in January, started interning at Phoenix’s New York office in 2010 when she was 22. She alleges that only two weeks into the internship, a company supervisor, Zhengzhu Liu, lured her to his room at the Hilton in Midtown by claiming the meeting would be to discuss her job performance and potential employment. Instead, she alleges he tried to kiss her “by force” and squeeze her butt, the suit claims.

LMAO ... interns aren't people!

You don't have to be an employee for unwanted sexual groping to be a crime.

I agree but you do have to be classified as an employee to file a sexual harrasement suit for money which is the justice she is after...



so the title is misleading

So how do I get me some hot interns?
