There's a debate going on in our house-- nothing earth shattering, but my husband and I have complete opposite opinions. Here's the situation...
Three interns at his company started their new 6 week gig on Monday. They were told at the time of their interview that paid parking was not included.
No parking is available in the company's small garage, but there is ample free street parking three short blocks away. If the interns want to park closer to the office, metered parking is available but it is only for 2 hours at a time and it would cost them $2.00 per hour.
They were each told of the parking situation before they were hired and again on their first day at work. They work 9am to 5pm and the office is in a safe area of Beverly Hills. By the way, the interns earn college credit for their work and are paid minimum wage.
Fast forward four days into the job and all three interns have at least one parking ticket each because they chose to park closer to the office at a meter and "lost track of time".
The interns want the company to pay for their parking tickets.
Who do you think should pay for the parking tickets?
