||<p>The Government believes in fair wages for fair work and opportunity for all. When
an intern meets the legal definition of a worker they must be paid at least the National
Minimum Wage. We actively promote fair and open access to paid internships through
the BIS-funded Graduate Talent Pool, and our Social Mobility Business Compact and
Common Best Practice Code for High Quality Internships ask employers to ensure that
any internships they offer are advertised openly and transparently and are paid fairly.
We have also made it simpler to name and shame employers that do not comply with national
minimum wage regulations and, in addition, complaints from interns are now fast-tracked
