Labor Laws and Issues: A Guide for Planning and Implementing Work-Based Learning Opportunities for Minors.
Piper, James W.
The focus of this publication is to maximize the ability of business, education, and community partners to access information relating to legal issues and minor labor laws that have implications for school-based and work-based learning experiences. Each section is intended to provide the most applicable legal and labor law information. Since paraphrasing federal and state laws runs the risk of changing the intent of those laws, much of this document consists of excerpts taken directly from the laws, rather than an interpretation of the law. Many of the legal questions and concerns that sometimes swirl around the notion of business and education partnerships are addressed. The excerpts, compilations, and general application of legal and labor issues are provided only as guidelines and are not meant to be complete reflections on the regulations. Materials include an introduction and sections on employment relationships; child labor laws; minimum wages and overtime; unemployment compensation; liability and risk management; related employment laws; and federal and state technical assistance directories. Organized around questions compiled from five focus groups around Ohio, the document highlights the major concerns that individuals in the field who place students in work-based learning environments face on a continuing basis.
