WHEN AND WHERE ARE TEENS ALLOWED TO WORK?
As millions of teens enter the summer seasonal workforce, the U.S. Department of Labor has scheduled a webinar for teens, parents, employers, and educators on how federal and state laws protect teen workers. The virtual event will be held Thursday, May 27 from 9:00 am–11 am.
Representatives from the Wage and Hour Division’s Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Wilkes-Barre district offices will join officials from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Labor Law Compliance to provide information and resources on regulations affecting youth employment, including the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Child Labor Act.
Attendance for the webinar is free, but registration is required. Register here for the webinar.
The webinar is part of the division’s “Essential Workers – Essential Protections” initiative to offer training on critical workplace protections to workers in essential industries. This program builds on the division’s YouthRules! initiative, which promotes positive and safe work experiences for young workers by educating the public about the types of jobs teens can hold and the number of hours they can work.
