Expect tighter limits on teen work hours

by on
in Human Resources

Teens are injured at twice the rate of adults at work, which has led the Department of Labor to consider limiting the number of hours teens may work. Under the law, 16- and 17-year-olds can work unlimited hours but cannot do certain hazardous jobs. Youths ages 14 and 15 are limited to certain nonhazardous jobs and cannot work more than three hours on a school day, 18 hours a week during school weeks, eight hours on a nonschool day and 40 hours in a nonschool week. During school, work can’t begin before 7 a.m. or end after 7 p.m. For a free DOL booklet, Child Labor Requirements, call (202) 693-0072.
