“Businesses in shore and tourist communities are having a difficult time finding employees for the busy summer season,” said Oroho (R-24). “This new law will allow employees age 16 to 18 to work as many as 50 hours per week. This is a temporary fix to a temporary problem, but the additional 10 hours each week could help both the worker and the business.”

The new law (A-5898/S-3963) requires permission from a parent or guardian for any teen-ager scheduled for the longer work week.

“I know there are employers here in my district that are struggling to fill work shifts, and they will benefit from the increased flexibility,” said Oroho.
