When Young Employees Get Injured
In California, workers under the age of 18 are protected by child labor laws. But what does that actually mean when a young person suffers a work-related injury? What are the actual protections and benefits?
At Glauber Berenson Vego, our attorneys have assisted injured workers, including minors and their parents, in Glendale, Pasadena and throughout the San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Valley for more than three decades. We can help minors and parents determine the right course of action moving forward.
What Happens After A Minor Is Injured At Work?
Generally, minors injured at work are treated just like adults are. They are eligible to receive the same protections and the same benefits, both temporary and permanent, depending on the severity and circumstances of the injury.
However, in California, employers have to comply with child labor laws, otherwise they face additional penalties. There are special conditions that apply to work in the entertainment sector, as well.
At Glauber Berenson Vego, we can help you determine the best path forward after an injury. We know that injuries to your children are particularly harrowing. We work to get the compensation needed so that the recovery process can go smoothly.
