Do you employ teens after school or in the summer? Many farms hire minors after school or in the summer. Employees under 18 years of age can be a big help to your operation. However, there are certain rules that apply when employing anyone under the age of 18. Are you in compliance? This webinar will cover federal regulations, as well as the rules that apply in New York, New Jersey and New England.
