New Guidance Regarding Penalties for Child Labor Violations


The Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division has issued a Field Assistance Bulletin that provides guidance that employers can use to determine when they can expect to be subject to child labor civil money penalties under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and how much they can expect to pay. The Bulletin also addresses the Child Labor Enhanced Penalty Program (CLEPP) created by the Wage and Hour division to incorporate changes made by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) to the FLSA's child labor penalty provisions.
