Posting Requirements

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to prominently post various notices pertaining to specific requirements of the Act in the workplace. The poster that specifically addresses the concerns of young workers is the "Minimum Wage Poster," which states the allowable work hours and times for employees under the age of 18. This poster also clearly states the fines for violation of child labor laws.

Many states have posting requirements that go beyond the Fair Labor Standards Act requirements, including posting more specific allowable work hours. Please consult your state department of labor for more specific information.
