  • On May 20, 2010, the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division published a Final Rule designed to protect working children from hazards in the workplace while also recognizing the value of safe work to children and their families. The Final Rule contains the most ambitious and far-reaching revisions to the child labor regulations in the last thirty years. The provisions of the Final Rule take effect on July 19, 2010. This is the second update to the child labor rules since 2005.
