$7.2 Million for Unpaid Interns - Largest Unpaid Intern Settlement to Date

In 2015, Virginia & Ambinder broke records for securing the largest unpaid intern settlement to date - $7.2 million. The case was brought in 2013 by unpaid interns claiming that Viacom failed to pay them minimum wages for the work they performed for the company. With this record-breaking settlement, V&A simultaneously set the standard for the treatment of interns and the standard for all intern case settlements to follow.  See Casey Ojeda, et al. v.
