“Jon & Kate Plus 8” fans can relax. Officials from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry revealed they investigated the reality show for alleged child labor violations, but found none.
The revelation came during a hearing on the state’s child labor laws sponsored by State Rep. Tom Murt (R-Montgomery/Philadelphia).
Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight children lived in Lower Heidelberg Township while The Learning Channel show was being produced between 2007 and 2009.
But the show did not escape state scrutiny without problems.
Investigators found the production company did not obtain the proper work permits for the children before taping. In exchange for a promise to obtain permits in the future, state officials elected not to fine the show’s producers.
Additionally, 15% of future revenues from the show must be put in a trust fund for the children.
Note: Any employer hiring underage workers should check state and federal child labor laws. There are extensive restrictions on hours worked and types of work underage workers may perform.
