  • florida child labor laws?

    My son is working for a fast food company and they have him working until 1:30am. He is attending his GED program which he goes Mon thru Thrursday until 9:00pm. They have him working on Sundays until 1:30am. He is sixteen years of age.

    Is this legal? My wife has already expressed to the manager that she did not want him working that late.

    What legal options do I have???

    Child Labor in Florida

    According to the state,
    For minors 16 & 17, the allowable work hours are: 30 hours a week when school is in session; eight hours per day between 6:30 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. if school is scheduled the following day. There are no limitations on hours worked when school is not scheduled the following day or during holidays and summer vacation.

    Minors are NOT permitted to work during normal school hours unless they are enrolled in a school-to-work experience program, career education or other program declared exempt by the state or have received a partial waiver.
