Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Child Labor Law. Provides that minors under 16 years of age working as child performers shall be permitted to work until 10 p.m. without seeking a waiver from the Department of Labor. Provides that an employer may apply to the Director of Labor, or his or her authorized representative, for a waiver permitting a minor to work outside of the hours allowed by the Act if specified criteria are satisfied.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that minors under 16 years of age working under specified provisions of the Act (rather than working as child performers) shall be permitted to work until 10 p.m. Provides that a waiver request for a minor to work between 12:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. may be granted if the Director of Labor, or his or her authorized representative, is satisfied that the performance by the minor during that time is critical to the success of the production, as demonstrated by true and accurate statements by the employer that filming cannot be completed at any other time of day; the filming primarily requires exterior footage of sunset, nighttime, or dawn; the filming is scheduled on the most optimal day of the week for the minor's schooling; the employer provides a schedule to the Department of Labor of schooling and rest periods on the day before, the day of, and the day after the overnight hours to be worked; and the age of the minor is taken into account as provided by the Act or any rules adopted under the Act. Provides that the waiver request must be received by the Department at least 72 hours (rather than 48 hours) prior to the overnight hours to be worked.
