There are no work hours limitations for 16- and 17-year-olds. Family Farms:  The above restrictions do not apply to youth who are employed by their parents on a farm owned or operated  by their parents.   Wages The federal minimum wage is $5.85 per hour. Overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one-half times  their regular rates of pay is required after 40 hours of work in a workweek.  There are various exemptions to  these requirements under which some employees are not entitled to minimum wage or overtime pay, and  some employees are entitled to minimum wage, but not to overtime pay.  For example, no one employed in  agriculture is required to be paid overtime pay.   Moreover, workers on small farms, and certain other  agricultural employees, are not entitled to the minimum wage. Youth Minimum Wage: A minimum wage of not less than $4.25 an hour is permitted for employees under 20  years of age during their first 90 consecutive calendar days of employment with an employer. Employers are  prohibited from taking any action to displace employees in order to hire employees at the youth minimum  wage. Also prohibited are partial displacements such as reducing employees' hours, wages, or employment  benefits.  Subminimum Wage Provisions: The FLSA provides for the employment of certain individuals at wage rates  below the statutory minimum. Such individuals include student-learners (vocational education students).  Such employment is permitted only under certificates issued by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and  Hour Division.  Federal and State Child Labor Laws Most states have child labor laws.  State child labor laws may be more protective or less protective of

working children than the federal child labor laws (FLSA).  For example, states may have different minimum  ages for employment, different hours of work restrictions, and additional occupations identified as hazardous. If a working child is protected by both federal and state child labor laws, then the more protective law  (whether it is the state or the federal law) is followed. A   noisy withdrawal  is the public withdrawal of legal representation in which the lawyer, having knowledge of  the client's existing or potential improprieties, such as a serious breach of securities law, disavows work done  for the client and notifies the proper authorities of his/her withdrawal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
