Child Labor Laws

 

 

Information on employing minors ages 14-17 and child labor laws is available on the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Regulation, Child Labor Program web page at http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/reg/childlabor/index.html  

The DBPR' s Child Labor program enforces child labor laws that are "designed to protect the health, education and welfare of Florida's working minors in the workplace and to safeguard their education. The program's mission has two primary objectives:

(1) To establish limits on the amount of hours that minors may work, so that minors will be able and available for school; and

(2) To restrict the types of jobs minors may perform for safety reasons."

The web page provides information for employers, educators, parents, and teens on prohibited occupations, safety, enforcement, training, and more.  Links are provided to a Child Labor Laws poster, Forms and Publications, Statutes and Rules, Frequently Asked Questions, and other resources.
