Child Labor Law Resources

Child labor laws seek to protect minors by prohibiting work in dangerous occupations and limiting their work hours to ensure their attendance at school. State laws govern child labor, including work permit, school attendance requirements, acceptable and prohibited types of work and regulation of work hours. There are also special requirements for underage actors and entertainers, and minors involved in farm work and door-to-door sales.
