Exemptions from Child Labor Laws

Connecticut laws allow minors under the age of 18 who have graduated from high school to work at the same daily and weekly hours and times of day as adults. Minors who are high school graduates are exempt from Connecticut employment prohibited to minors, but not from the federal employment prohibitions.

Employers subject to coverage by both state and federal laws regulating the employment of minors must comply with the more stringent provisions of the two laws.
