Posted by in Legal Consultation

The child labor laws in American have come into effect to prevent dangerous and exploitative conditions that are faced by children in the 19th and 20th century. The majority of American child labor laws are found in the Fair Labor Standards Act. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, children under the age of 12, cannot be hired for non-agricultural jobs, except under certain extraordinary circumstances (like child actors). However, children under the age of 12, can be hired for agricultural employment for unlimited hours, if parental consent is provided. Children between the ages of 12-16 can work in certain jobs for limited hours per day. Children between the ages of 16-18 can work for unlimited hours in nonhazardous occupations. However, these laws can vary from state to state. Although child labor is regulated in the US, there are still concerns that underage children are forced to work. Statistics show that children in agricultural professions do not complete high school, are exposed to dangerous pesticides and can experience hazards that are fatal. The other concern for watch groups are child actors, whose earnings are controlled by their parents. Circumstances such as these can lead to disputes when the parents decide to divorce. A company or an individual should always consult an attorney if they are considering hiring a child worker.
