Regulations Surrounding Youth Employment

OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

Gain an understanding of the restrictions placed under Federal law to ensure implementation strategies are compliant.

Both state and federal law place limitations on the hours of work and types of jobs that may be performed by minors. What tasks can they be hired to perform? What hours can they be scheduled to work? Can I hire a minor as an unpaid intern? Are there any specific requirements to protect minors against harassment, discrimination or retaliation? This topic will answer those and additional questions regarding employing youth, and helps the persons responsible for hiring, scheduling, and supervising minors in employment to understand the restrictions in place under federal law and steps and strategies to implement to help ensure compliance with applicable laws. This information is critical for employers who have employees under that age of 18 to help protect the company from liability that can result from violations of the youth employment laws.
