How do you protect yourself if your child is being exploited in a factory?
There are many different types of laws you might be aware of.
These laws are enforced by the Labor Standards Administration (LSA), the United States Department of Labor (DOL), and a handful of state governments.
But what are they all about?
If you’re interested in learning more about these laws, you can find out more about them at the following links.
Labor Standards Act (Labor Code): This law is the main law governing child labor in the US.
It’s the federal law that governs the workplace in the United State.
The law sets out the minimum wage and overtime requirements for all employers.
It also sets out what types of work they are allowed to do.
This includes the right to be paid overtime for hours worked during non-working hours.
It requires employers to provide written notice of any change in the hours worked or shift schedule for workers, and to pay workers the overtime rate in addition to the regular rate.
If an employer doesn’t provide these notice requirements, they can be fined up to $10,000 and have their business licenses revoked.
The Labor Code is very broad and it can apply to almost any industry.
In addition to child labor, the Labor Code also covers the protection of employees in the workplace, such as: workers who are in a place where they can’t leave their jobs and are not required to show identification, or who are unable to go home or do other activities that are protected by the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Acts (FLSA)
