Labor shortage is an employer issue that spans across industries. Many have avoided hiring minors in the past due to strict regulations that placed limitations on the tasks they are legally able to perform. These same employers are now turning to a minor workforce to fill the staffing gaps they are experiencing.

Lack of qualified workers is especially critical for senior living and social service facilities. If your facility employs minors, make sure you – and your staff – are aware of the added legal obligations and are prepared to remain compliant.
