The Attorney General enforces the provisions of the Massachusetts Child Labor Laws. These laws were written to protect young workers who suffer injuries at much higher rates than adults and who need to balance work and education. Generally, the work of minors is restricted with respect to three main areas: minimum age, hours, and occupations. Information on these laws and restrictions – as well as an application for the mandatory Youth Work Permit – can be found here.
