As a teenager you will be paid a youth minimum wage of $4.25 / hour during the first 90 consecutive calendar days of employment. After these 90 days, the law requires employers to pay you the full federal minimum wage.
You can see information regarding teenager laws, a list of regulations, minimum wage rates and labor office contact information specific to your state in our State Regulations Page.

- Teenagers 13 years old or under can’t work on an established business unless is owned entirely by their parents and is not a hazardous occupation; see this page for some great work ideas.
- Teenagers 14 and 15 years old may work outside school hours in certain specified jobs.
- Teenagers 16 and 17 years old may perform any jobs not considered hazardous.
- Teenagers 18 years or older may perform any job, whether hazardous or not.

- Obtain working papers / employment certificate application from school or Department of Labor.
- Obtain a certificate of physical fitness from your doctor. You may need to have had a physical within the last year.
