Employers

The laws governing safety, hours, hiring, wages, benefits, and permissible activities differ primarily based on age.  There are restrictions on jobs and hours that teenagers may work, and penalties that may be assessed if these regulations are not followed.  We can provide guidance for employers about safe and legal employment of young workers and can direct them to the appropriate state or federal agencies for more in-depth information.
