Before forging ahead with summer hires, employers should carefully evaluate state law restrictions to determine whether they overlap and/or supplement the FLSA and, either way, how they apply depending on a multitude of factors that can go well-beyond just the minor’s age.

Hiring minors can be daunting in any state given the FLSA's child labor restrictions that vary depending on the individual's age, the work contemplated, and even the local public school's schedule.

Summer's approach has sparked renewed interest in the FLSA's exception permitting employers to pay a lower wage-rate of at least $4.25 an hour to teen workers for the first 90 days of their employment.
