Be sure you are doing your part to keep your young workers safe. Use these self-assessment tools to check your knowledge of, and compliance with, regulations that apply to your young workers.
Non-agricultural employer self-assessment tool
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division produced this self assessment tool to help employers comply with the child labor provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the implementing regulations at 29 C.F.R. Part 570. These provisions are designed to protect young workers by restricting the types of jobs they perform and the number of hours they work. The U.S. Department of Labor strives to educate teens, parents, educators, and employers on the federal child labor rules in order to promote positive and safe work experiences for young workers. One of our biggest challenges, however, is disseminating the information and identifying potential problems before injuries or, even worse, deaths, occur.
You can use this tool to help evaluate your firm’s level of compliance. You are not required to use this tool, but we believe you will find it helpful in preventing problems and achieving compliance with the federal child labor provisions. Do not send this completed tool to the Department of Labor.
If you answer YES to any questions, you are likely out of compliance.
