How do we avoid legal risks that comes with an early stage startup not paying any salaries?

As with any form of hiring (whether it be employees or interns) you should have contracts in place. You definitely don’t want to leave your business vulnerable to any type of litigation. Within the contract, you’ll want to be sure to address things such as the start and end date as well as the agreed upon conditions of the internship.

Internships can be a great learning opportunity for students and young professionals, but it shouldn’t be confused with free labor. Businesses that take on interns are doing so in order to help them learn skills. In some instances, hiring interns may even cost you some money due to errors and learning curves.

Your best bet for moving forward is to hire a knowledgeable contract attorney to help draft this agreement.
