The Alexandria Shooting Park in Alexandria recently found out that having a parent’s permission isn’t enough to make it legal to hire an underage worker—or to shield an employer from childviolations.
The shooting range faces a $3,750 fine after it employed a 13-year-old child to keep score in a trap-shooting tournament, clean up spent gun shells, dump garbage and clean bathrooms. The child’s father had provided written permission to employ the child, “knowing his maturity and the great safety that is consistently applied” at the park.
Note: Parental permission is necessary to employ minors, but it does not trump child labor laws. Employers must check to ensure a job is age appropriate before hiring an underage employee.
