Child Labor Main Menu

The FLSA Child Labor Advisor is designed to answer questions about workers and businesses that are subject to federal child labor rules. This Advisor provides information at different levels of detail, depending on who is seeking the information. For example, if you are a teenager, you probably should click on "Youth" in the list below. Or, if you are a teacher, or other interested person, clicking on "Teacher" may be the best choice. You may, however, click on any one of the four choices on the left side to enter the Advisor.

If this is your first visit to the FLSA Child Labor Advisor, we recommend that you choose one of the categories from the left side of the page.

If you have visited this Advisor before, or already have information about the federal child labor laws, you may want specific information from one of the categories on the right side of the page.
