Step 1: Prepare for an Intern


Make sure you understand the state laws regarding paid & un-paid internships, the Bureau of Labor & Industries (BOLI) has information available on their website regarding current labor laws.  You may also refer to our Employer Toolkit for more information.

If you are hosting an intern in Central Oregon and do not wish to manage HR services for the intern, there are multiple local organizations that can be the employer of record and cover human resources for your intern.
