Revenge Of The College Kids: Former Interns Sue DKNY
Revenge Of The College Kids: Former Interns Sue DKNY

Employers you may want to be a little careful on how you treat your interns.

Former unpaid DKNY intern Valentino Smith has filed class-action lawsuit against Donna Karen International on behalf of 100 other interns, the New York Post reports.

“He characterized it as a “Devil Wears Prada” atmosphere,” said Smith’s attorney, Lloyd Ambinder..,

 “He got so much coffee for people he knew what they wanted without having to ask,” said Ambinder.

Smith, 25, did menial office jobs like data entry, shipping inventory, organizing closets and answering phones, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit.

“Using a copy machines isn’t what someone would call an internship,” said Smith who had expected to get on-the-job training toward his career.

“I feel like I was taken advantage of.”

Smith should have been paid the $7.25 houly minimum wage, he says.

“DKI believes it has acted properly and legally,” said company rep Valerie Gelicame.
