Alaska Free Printable Child Labor Law Posters Summary of Alaska Child Labor Law Poster

The Summary of Alaska Child Labor Law is a child labor law poster by the Alaska Department Of Labor and Workforce Development. This is an optional poster, so while it is recommended that you post this if it is relevant to your employees, you are not required to by the Department Of Labor and Workforce Development.

This poster is optional to post and may be posted in a place where any person under age 18 is employed in Alaska. 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. It must be printed landscape on 8 1/2" x 14" paper. Minors of any age under 18 are prohibited from working more than 6 days per week. Minors under the age of 14 are restricted to work most occupations unless it is newspaper sale/delivery, baby-sitting, or the entertainment industry (other restrictions for minors of age 14-15 are listed on poster). Hours may be limited depending on if a minor is attending a school or during school vacations. Minors are allowed to take breaks if they work six consecutive hours. The poster also contains information on when a minor is permitted to serve alcohol.
