Florida Free Printable Child Labor Law Posters Florida Child Labor Laws Poster

The Florida Child Labor Laws is a child labor law poster by the Florida Department Of Economic Opportunity. This poster is mandatory for some employers, including employers of minors.

This Florida poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all minor employees will see it. The child labor law details the weekly and daily hour restrictions on minor employees for when school is in session and when school is out of session. This poster also describes the restricted occupations for minors, fines for employers who violate child labor laws, and required breaks for all minors. Regulations for this law have been updated in 2016 but still apply to the 2019 year.
