WHAT ARE THE RESTRICTIONS ON CHILD LABOR?

What are Restrictions on Child Labor

Minors under 18 years old may not work in any jobs that are considered to be hazardous. This includes those minors involved in mining, wrecking and demolition, logging, and roofing.

To encourage minors under the age of 18 to stay in school rather than become overworking workers too soon, there are additional restrictions on when and how long workers between ages 14 and 16 may be employed in nonhazardous jobs including:

• They may work no more than three hours on a school day and no more than 18 hours in a school week.
• They may work no more than eight hours on a non-school day and no more than 40 hours in a non-school week.

However, it’s important to note that some industries have special exemptions from the legal restrictions on child labor. Youths of any age may deliver newspapers or perform in television, movie, or theatrical productions.
