What If The Employer Violated Child Labor Laws?
If it turns out that the minor’s employer violated child labor laws, or put the minor in unsafe working conditions, the minor may be entitled to enhanced workers’ comp benefits. The employer may have to pay double the usual benefits to the minor for certain violations.
