  • MOM MAKING ME WORK Florida

    I'm 17 and for the past year I have been working full time with my mother at this title company. I don't wish to work full time but she says I have to in order to get my car. What kind of trouble could she get into for being my boss and my mom and hiring me to work 40 hours plus a week?

    None, from your post there isn't anything illegal happening. If you want the car, do what her Mom asks and earn it.

      Sorry to burst your bubble but your mother may make you get a job if you want a car. That is a parenting decision, not a legal one. No state has ever passed a law that says kids should get privledges without having to earn them. At 17 it is perfectly legal for you to work 40 hours a week.
      I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

        Nor is there anything illegal about her being your boss.

        Your mom is not going to get into any kind of trouble. You are, though - with her.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

          If you want a car, then it appears you'd better be prepared to work. Your mother is doing you a FAVOR by providing a job for you so that you can earn the money for the car you want.

          Sheesh.

              Sorry y'all. I sent her here to ask this portion of her question because I didn't understand that she was asking if it was legal for her mother to make her get off her behind to earn the money for a car.

                  answer

                  Actually, in Florida, a 17 year old does have a limit of a maximum of 30 hours a week (during a school week, even if there is only one day of school during the week, this is considered a school week and a 16-17 year old minor cannot exceed 30 hours under theses conditions)

                    There are some exceptions to this rule. When do/did you graduate high school?

                        If that's the case, then the OP may work a full-time schedule.

                          And, this post was from several months ago.
