  •  The legality depends on three things (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The state where you live and where the job is, the tasks you will be performing, and the organizational character of the company. Some states have much tougher laws on internships and externships. The second is the task you are performing. Anyone can write something that is then published and for which you are not compensated. If you are not doing creative work it is less likely to be legal. Lastly, people work all the time, at every possible function in non-profits, all of which is legal as long as you sign up as a volunteer.
