Coach Hit With Unpaid Internship Lawsuit
Coach is the latest company to be sued for allegedly misclassifying its unpaid interns. Former intern Johnetta Campbell has filed suit against the New York-based brand, alleging that she was misclassified as an intern when she worked in Coach's Manhattan office from January 2012 to March 2012. According to Campbell's complaint, which was filed last month in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, she worked five days a week, from five hours to eight hours per day. Moreover, Campbell alleges that Coach started this practice to minimize labor costs and retain a higher profit value.
