There are other job prohibitions that only apply to certain ages of children.
Children under the age of 14 are not permitted to work in any non-agricultural occupations unless their parents are engaged in a non-hazardous business.
Children between the ages of 14 and 15 may only work while they are not in school. There are also restrictions on how many hours they may labor every day. They may work up to 3 hours each day during the school day and 18 hours per week.
Finally, they are restricted to working just during certain hours of the day. They can usually only work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. They may, however, labor between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. from June 1 through Labor Day.
Ages 16-17: There is no time restriction on how many hours a 16 or 17-year-old may work. However, if you are under the age of 18, you are not permitted to work in any of the above-mentioned dangerous jobs.
Age 18 and up: There are no restrictions on the number of hours you may work if you are 18 or older.
