It specifies rules on the number of hours and work times that can be assigned to minors of different ages and specifies certain exemptions to various child-labor regulations. The poster specifies restrictions for teens at age ranges between 14-15 and 16-18. It lists the requirements of what type of certificates are required from minors, how many hours they are permitted to work depending on school and certain days of the week. It also shows when breaks are allowed and policies when alcohol may be served in an establishment. Inspections from the Department of Labor are permitted without a warrant needed for routine inspections.
