Is an employer required to give interns vacation time?

There are no laws specifically requiring a company to provide vacation time to interns. If an employer offers paid time off under a handbook, written, or unwritten policy, the employer should specifically explain how interns will be treated in that policy. Remember that local and state laws on sick leave may also apply to interns.
