Current Bill Summary

SB 16 - This act exempts farm work performed by children under the age of 16 from certain child labor requirements including: the obtaining of a work certificate; hours/days of performance; and certain prohibited hazardous jobs such as operating and maintaining power-driven machinery, climbing ladders, operating vehicles, and working with certain chemicals. This exemption only applies to children working on their own family farms and, when with the knowledge and consent of their parents, the family farms of others.

This act is identical to provisions contained in CCS/SS/SCS/HB 1073 (2012) and HCS/HB 1254 (2012), and is substantially similar to HB 334 (2013).
