What laws affect the hiring of younger teens?

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, fourteen is the minimum hiring age for non-agricultural employment with limits on the number of hours minors can work and the types of jobs they can perform.

For 14 and 15-year-old employees, ALL work must be performed outside of school hours and they may not work:

  • More than 3 hours on a school day, including Fridays.
  • Over 18 hours per week when school is in session.
  • More than 8 hours per day when school is not in session.
  • More than 40 hours per week when school is not in session.
  • Before 7 AM or after 7 PM on any day, except from June 1st through Labor Day, when night-time work hours are extended to 9 PM.

In some states, teens may need to obtain a work permit to seek employment. The best way to find out if they’ll need to complete this step is by consulting with their school’s guidance office or your state’s department of labor.

Although some exceptions may apply, teens must generally be paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour (but this will depend on what they do and where they work).
