FAQsQ1: I have an established relationship with a refugee youth, how can I hire them for an internship?Salt Lake County (SLCO) will do all the hiring.

Can you ensure my new intern can meet this expectation? No. The purpose of this internship program is to support refugee youth to develop employment skills and confidence in navigating American workplace culture.

As a supervisor, you must submit your intern’s timesheet to Shauna Briggs ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) on time (10am). If timesheets are submitted late, interns will not be paid until the following payday. If an employee has questions about their pay, please have them contact Shauna directly. Q4: My intern received an employee verification form from the Department of Workforce Services, what do I do with it?If you are a Salt Lake County agency, your division’s payroll coordinator will complete this form. If you are an outside employer, this form needs to be filled out by Shauna Briggs (email@example.com ). Your intern can bring the form to her office (177 W.
