MYEP Host Employer Application

Does this position have any age restrictions/limitations where the intern must be at least 18 years of age?

By participating in the City of Charlotte Mayor's Youth Employment Program (MYEP), the Host Employer understands and agrees with the following aspects of the MYEP:
  1. The City will attempt to recommend one or more candidates for each youth internship position made available by the Host Employer. The City will only recommend candidates who have passed a drug and alcohol test and whose criminal history background check results are acceptable to the City. A copy of a criminal history background check will be made available to the Host Employer upon request.

  2. As the Host Employer you are not obligated to employ a candidate recommended by the City. The Host Employer has the right to interview a recommended candidate and conduct additional screening or investigation as it deems appropriate. The decision to hire a candidate as a MYEP Intern is solely that of the Host Employer. In addition, the Host Employer has the right to terminate an intern for any lawful reason.

  3. A MYEP intern is the employee of you, the Host Employer, and not the City. You are solely responsible for the legal obligations of an employer with respect to the MYEP Intern(s).

  4. The Host Employer shall develop and provide (a) clear job description(s), provide appropriate orientation and job-specific training, and identify (a) supervisor(s) who will be able to devote sufficient time to mentor its MYEP Intern(s).

  5. The Host Employer and/or the City shall compensate its MYEP Intern(s) at a rate not less than $8.00 per hour. The Host Employer may provide the Intern with additional compensation and benefits if it chooses to do so.

  6. The Host Employer shall permit the Intern(s) to be released for MYEP training and/or event purposes. All such activities shall be scheduled in advance with the Host Employer and the MYEP staff.

  7. The City will support the Host Employer and its MYEP Intern(s) through regular communication from MYEP staff.

  8. At the conclusion of the program, the Host Employer may continue to employ its MYEP Intern(s) outside of the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program.

As a representative of my company, I understand and agree to the MYEP Program aspects listed above.
