Home / US Legislation / THE CARE ACT


The Children’s Act for Responsible Employment (CARE Act), HR 3564, would ensure that all working children are protected equally. It would:

Apply the same age and hour requirements to children working in agriculture that already apply to all other working children, including raising the minimum age for hazardous work from 16 to 18;
Preserve the family farm exception that excuses children working on their parents’ farms from the child labor law;
Increase fines for child labor violations to $15,000 from $11,000;
Strengthen provisions regarding children’s exposure to pesticides;
Require better data collection from the Department of Labor.
