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.
