Minor (Child) Labor Law

The Louisiana Revised Statutes pertaining to Minor Labor Law are posted on the Louisiana Legislature's Web site at
Clicking on "Louisiana Laws" on the menu bar on the left side of the legislature site's main screen will bring you to a search page for the laws.

All sections of the law covering minor labor are found in Revised Statute 23. Since the site, at present, requires the user to access each individual section of the statute rather than allowing the user to scroll through the entire statute, we have listed each applicable section below.

On the search page, select "RS" for the Law Body; enter "23" next to Title, Article, or Rule Number; enter the applicable number listed below for Section Number; and click on View to access the law.


The Louisiana Workforce Commission has also compiled the Minor Labor Statutes and Administrative Rules regarding Minor Labor and has printed the same in an "Informational Booklet Concerning Employment of Minors," available online or by calling (225) 342-7824.
