Minor Laws of Major Importance: A Guide to Federal and State Child Labor Laws.
Fraser, Bryna Shore; And Others
Although at least one-third of U.S. high school students are employed, many parents, employers, and workers are confused or uninformed regarding the mix of federal and state laws that apply to young people in the workplace. This guide is a sourcebook on federal and state legislation that affects workers under the age of 18. It describes exactly what laws apply to specific work situations for employed youth. The guide covers employer responsibilities, employment age certification, age restrictions, occupation restrictions, hour restrictions, and hazardous occupation restrictions covered by federal laws. The guide also summarizes state regulations on wage, occupation, and hour laws for minors and provides a list of telephone numbers of the offices in each state that regulate youth employment. (KC)
