An internship/temporary work experience through DVR:
Intern wages are paid by DVR while the consumer participates in the program; wages paid will be the prevailing and customary wage and benefit level paid by the employer for the position worked and may not be less than minimum wage. Payroll services and costs associated with unemployment insurance and workers' compensation liability will be provided by DVR's Employer of Record (EOR) service (certificate available upon request). DVR will also provide support to the business site to ensure the smooth incorporation of the intern and address any individual needs.

DVR will cover the costs of training wages and related workers' compensation and unemployment insurance through an Employer of Record service. The Employer of Record maintains only the following responsibilities:
For the Employer of Record to accurately calculate workers compensation liability insurance coverage, DVR needs to obtain the employer's workers' compensation code. Individuals in payroll or the human resource department may be most familiar with this code. The site employer's workers' compensation code is needed because the EOR must carry the appropriate workers' compensation liability insurance coverage for each consumer. The site employer must provide the same codes it uses when it processes payroll for its own employees.
DVR's Employer of Record is:
200 E. Cramer Street
P.O. Box 278
