S.F. No. 226 - Time of Day for Work for High School Students
Author: Senator Thomas M. Bakk
Prepared By: Carlon D. Fontaine, Senate Counsel (651/296-4395)
Date: February 7, 2017


Section 1 [Time of day, high school students] expands time of day limitations for high school students to include students that are over 18 years of age.  Under current law, the time of day limitations apply only to high school students under 18 years of age. Currently, high school students under 18 are prohibited from working after 11:00 p.m. on a school night or before 5:00 a.m. on a school day, except students under 18 may provide the employer with a note signed by a parent or guardian to extend working hours until 11:30 p.m. on a school night and 4:30 a.m. on a school day.  The bill would require a high school student that is 18 or older to provide a written request to the employer to work during hours that are prohibited for high school students.
