Condé Nast pays interns $5.8m to settle low-pay lawsuit


Condé Nast has agreed to pay former interns 5.8 million dollars to settle a class-action lawsuit that accused the company of underpaying its workers. The company, which publishes Vogue, Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest, GQ and other magazines, will retroactively pay more than 7,000 former interns. Payments will range from $700 to $1,900.

Former interns have filed similar lawsuits against Harper’s Bazaar, Gawker Media and Fox Searchlight. Last year a judge ruled the latter violated minimum wage laws by not paying interns who worked on the film Black Swan.
