State Child labor Law Restrictions and PEO’s (Professional Employer Organization) go hand in hand in keeping small business owners up to date on all restrictions and laws.
In our home state of Colorado the child labor law reads: Minors 14 & 15 years of age must have school release permits to be employed during school hours. The permits are issued by the school district superintendent and apply to a specific position, employer and length of time designated in the permit.
Doing business in California employers also must have a permit on file to employ all minors.
As a Professional Employer Organization our goal is to help keep all employers on the right side of the law. Many small employers may not be aware of the proper procedures on hiring minors in today’s work place. Contact StaffScapes for more details on minors working in your business.
