Can someone help me revise this letter PLEASE!!!?

To:Joshua Turck <joshua.turck@ortho.com> From:Sable Johnson <sable.johnson.staffingservices.com> Subject:DEVELOPING A LEGITIMATE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM Cc: Josh: Your inquiry about the status of our interns caused my staff and myself to look into this matter more carefully. We wanted to, if at all possible, try and learn how to treat interns legally. To study this matter more carefully, the problem of interns was taken by my staff and me to our Legal Department. Our attornies told us that all interns must be considered employees and paid at least the minimum wage. Coming to us in an internship program, attorneys said that college students are legitimate only if he or she is receiving real training. Interns are not legetimate if they do any of the following: ·Displace a regular employee ·Complete a clients work for which we bill ·Are promised full-time jobs at the end of training Having every single intern sign a contract saying that they are willing to except college credit in place of wages does not provide legal protection. An intern who we select must do more then busy work. After reviewing our complete program, future interns must have a structured training program, believes our staff. We feel badly that our department was unaware of these regulations before the companies fall internship program was publicized. If it was possible to reprint our announcements, we would do so. However, those announcements have all ready been released. I appreciate you bringing this matter to my attention. Within a weeks time, we will arrange for you to meet with the vice-president and myself to analyze this falls program and consider changes. We realize that a strong intern ship program can provide us with superior, well-trained personnel, however, the program must meet government regulations. Sable Johnson, Director Human Resources Department

As you allude to having a legal department, I would advise having them draft your letter for you. They will do so in such a way so as to avoid it being used against you.
