Q: Do Minor work permits change because of online schooling? Can we work more than 4 hours on a week day?
Since schools have been moved to online and we are not physically going to school, can a 17 year old work more than 4 hours on a Monday? My boss doesn't know for sure but my school did provide a new work permit providing new hours, but my boss would like to make sure its legal before he takes action.
A: There have been no changes to the laws related to minors working that have come about as a result of the Covid situation. Therefore, the same limitation on the number of hours a minor can work apply now as before.
Your boss needs to get specific, confidential advice from his attorney, not from you.
Good luck to you.
