ALERT!  Changes to Kentucky Labor Law Poster as of June 2018

The updates to the Kentucky Child Labor Law include changes to the hours that can be worked with parental permission.   Minors who are 16 and 17 years old, may work up to 32.5 hours in a week when school is in session, and a total of 6.5 hours in any one school day, but only with written parental permission.   In addition, minors 16 and 17 years old who have written parental permission may not work before 6:00 a.m. on any day, and after 11:00 p.m. preceding a school day, and on non-school days they may not work after 1:00 a.m.

The remainder of the rules are unchanged, and a summary can be found on the KLC website.  The new mandatory poster can be obtained on the Kentucky Labor Cabinet website.

In addition, the Kentucky Wage Discrimination Because of Sex poster was updated effective this month with technical changes and includes changes to the phone and fax number.  The newest poster can also be found on the Kentucky Labor Cabinet website.
