Child Labor Laws - Who has to have a work permit in Indiana?

Minors working as actors, performers and models are indeed exempt from the work permit requirement, as well as many other child Labor laws. A parent must be present at all rehearsals and performances for a minor under 16. Also, the duties performed during the course of the performance and/or rehearsals cannot be detrimental to the health or well-being of the minor. For more information, see child labor permits and restrictions.

Who is eligible for worker's compensation benefits?

The law requires most businesses to have worker’s compensation insurance. If you are injured while working at your job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. For more information, visit the Worker’s Compensation Board of Indiana.
