Dallas, Texas employment attorney Keith Clouse helps employers make hiring and firing decisions. He guides them into compliance with the state and federal laws that cover employment issues. He notes that the Texas Workforce Commission recently issued a press release regarding teenage workers. As summer approaches, many employers hire teenagers for seasonal work.
The TWC reminds employers that any person under the age of 18 is considered a child when employed. Federal and state child labor laws apply to these workers. These laws are designed to protect teenagers from hazardous working conditions that could impact their safety, well-being, or health. Employers must also comply with federal and state wage and hour laws.
In Texas, different child labor laws apply to particular age groups and job types. In general, as a child’s age increases, the child can perform more types of work and can work longer hours. Employers may visit www.texasworkforce.org/ui/lablaw/llcl70.pdf to view the TWC’s child labor law poster for more information.
