Harper’s Bazaar was sued by their intern, Xuedan Wang who worked from august 2010 to December 2011 for 40-50 hours per week. Wang filed a lawsuit against Hearst ( the fashion glossy’s publisher ) for violating state and federal wage and hour laws by not paying her when she was doing the work of a paid employee. A worker of Above The Lawsuit said as long as the intern received school credit, internship is considered legal, and however Wang had already graduated and worked full time doing. Her job was to do fairly menial tasks like coordinating pickups, deliveries and maintaining records (and ordering around more low-level interns to do even more menial things). It is still a question mark, why she was allowed to intern at Harper’s Bazaar full-time before she was graduated without school credit, while on Hearst publication says that all interns have to be able to receive school credit and submit a letter from their school to Harper’s Bazaar which means Wang’s internship must be under the table.
