What are the rules on employing minors?

by 10/21/2008

Q. My son and his friends, all of whom are 11 years old, have asked if they can work for me for the next several months in order to earn money for a camping trip they plan to take during summer break. Can I help out my son and his friends by employing them for a few hours after school several days a week? I know there are child labor laws, but this is a good cause.
