AR Removes Work Restrictions for 17 Year Olds

To give employers more flexibility in hiring and allow more opportunities for older teens to be employed, the state legislature has enacted emergency legislation that removes work hour restrictions for 17-year-old workers in Arkansas. Act 162 (H.B. 1116) amends the Arkansas child labor law to remove the work hour restrictions for those who are 17 years of age. Instead, the work hour restrictions will apply to a child under 17 years of age.
