Child Labor Hours Limits Changed to Match Federal Law

Effective July 1, 2011

Effective July 1, 2011, Wisconsin’s child labor hours limitations will be the same as those under federal law.

The new law provides:

Minors and Hazardous Work

Wisconsin's laws restricting minors under 18 from performing hazardous work have not been affected by these changes, nor has the requirement that minors obtain child labor permits prior to working in most occupations (other than agriculture or domestic service).

Child Labor Poster

A new child labor poster (ERD-9212-P) has been issued, effective July 1, 2011.
