Wisconsin Updates Child Labor Poster; New Poster Required

The latest required change to the Wisconsin labor law poster is on the WI child labor poster called “Hours and Times of Day Minors May Work in Wisconsin”.

The child labor poster, which has been almost completely changed, includes new information that state and federal laws do not limit the hours that minors age 16 or over may work, except that they may not be employed during required school hours.  

A Maximum Hours of Work chart now covers only 14 and 15-year-olds.

Other new information covers required work permits, a meal period requirement and the minimum wage ($7.25 per hour) and “opportunity wage” ($5.90) for minors in their first 90 days.

We are currently updating our Wisconsin labor law poster with this latest change.   For more information about the WI labor law poster or to learn more about our OneSystem 1-Year Compliance Plan with automatic updates, go to the Poster Compliance Center Wisconsin labor law poster page or call 1-800-322-3636.
