The office of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has cited a Whitinsville, Massachusetts McDonald’s franchise for child labor law violations. After receiving complaints, auditors found that 16 and 17-year olds were working between the hours of midnight and 6 am and working more than 9 hours in a single day, both in violation of Massachusetts General Laws, c.149. There are other limitations on employing children under 18 and further restrictions on employing children under 16. We strongly recommend that you contact your labor attorney if you employ minors to ensure compliance with your state’s child labor laws.
