Young Worker Toolkit

Know the dos and don'ts for your employment situation. This comprehensive toolkit will provide you information to help you make the most of your work experience.

There are numerous resources to obtain information about young workers. From wages to safety and health issues, it is important for you to be informed about your rights and responsibilities. Remember, your state rules may differ from the federal rules.

WHD fact sheets are written in easy to understand language and are the perfect resource for valuable information about the various laws we enforce, including rules for young workers. You can keep those rules handy with a bookmark that lists the highlights. There is also a calendar for recording both your hours and wages so you can see if you are being paid properly.
