The YouthRules! initiative promotes positive and safe work experiences for teens by providing information about protections for young workers to youth, parents, employers, and educators. Through the YouthRules! initiative, the U.S. Department of Labor and its partners promote positive and safe work experiences that help prepare young workers in the 21st-century workforce.
From the YouthRules! website you can quickly access information about federal and state labor laws that apply to young workers. The website educates teens on the rules, and provides information for parents, educators, and employers.
As part of the YouthRules! initiative, the U.S. Department of Labor and its partners develop and distribute informational materials, provide training on federal and state rules governing young workers, increase awareness through public service announcements, and develop other tools designed to increase compliance with federal and state laws.
