Youth Employees: Considerations for Employers Hiring Teenagers
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of employed youths 16 to 24 years of age rose by 1.8 million to 18.6 million last year. While the number of youths employed at any point during the year fluctuates, it typically peaks during the summertime.
