There are a number of restrictions on the types of jobs that a 14 year old can have. Some of the jobs that can be done by someone of this age include working at stores and restaurants as well as working in a non-manufacturing, non-mining and non-hazardous environment. If you are 14 or 15 then the hours you work are legally restricted. During the school year you are only allowed to work 3 hours a day with a total of no more than 18 hours a week. On days where there is no school and during the summer holidays, these hours can be increased to 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week. Time limits are also in play when considering jobs for 14 year olds. Children cannot work any later than 7pm during the school year and no later than 9pm during non school days and the summer holidays.

In the United States, some states require any one who is working under the age of eighteen to obtain and fill out working papers, also known as employment or age certificates. The best way to find out if you need to obtain these papers is to ask someone in your school guidance office. They will be able to inform you about the rights you have in the working environment as well as give you the employment or age certificates and help you fill them out. These working papers will need to be submitted alongside a certificate of your physical fitness from a doctor, proof of your age and often you will need a parent or guardian to come along with you to oversee the process.

Working while you are still at school can be stressful and have a serious effect on your grades so you should really think about taking on a job before signing the dotted line. If you are offered a job, make sure it meets all of the legal requirements for someone of your ages and query a parent or guardian about anything in the contract you are not sure of.
