Revised Indiana Teen Work Hour Restrictions – What changed?
During the 2020 Indiana legislative term, major revisions were made to Indiana’s “Youth Employment” Law pursuant to Senate Bill 409. Shortly before these amendments went into effect on April 1, 2020, the Indiana Department Labor released a substantially revised 2020 Indiana Teen Work Hour Restrictions workplace posting reflecting the changes in law affecting (1) 14- and 15-year-old employees and (2) 16- and 17-year-old employees.
In November 2020, the Indiana Department of Labor (IDOL) revised again the 2020 Teen Work Hour Restrictions workplace posting to clarify the law’s work hour restrictions applicable to 16- and 17-year-olds, who may not:
- work more than 6 consecutive workdays
- start work between 12:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.
- work in an establishment open to the public between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. unless another employee at least 18 years of age also works during the same hours as the minor.
Who should purchase the Indiana Teen Work Hour Restrictions Peel ‘N Post?
- Indiana Peel ‘N Post for Indiana All-On-One Posters. The law requires every employer that employs a minor between the ages of 14 and 18 in an occupation for which the minor must obtain a work permit, to post the IDOL’s Teen Work Hour Restrictions posting in a conspicuous location at the workplace. (Indiana Code § 22-2-18-39) We have created the 2020 Indiana Teen Work Hour Restrictions Peel ‘N Post to adhere seamlessly onto the outdated Teen Work Hour posting on your existing Indiana All-On-One™ Labor Law Poster so that your poster is 100% compliant.
- Indiana Peel ‘N Post for Indiana Mobile Poster Paks (MPP). To ensure minor employees who work remotely are informed of their rights and protections, employers can supplement their workplace posting obligation by ensuring that remote workers have a fully updated Indiana Mobile Poster Pak. For employers that already provide employees with Indiana MPPs, we have also created the 2020 Indiana Teen Work Hour Restrictions Peel ‘N Post to stick over the Teen Work Hour posting in your Indiana MPP booklet.
