Child Labor Unit (CLU)
The Child Labor Unit (CLU) is responsible for the enforcement of child labor. Child labor laws are designed to protect minors by regulating the legal age or employment, work permit process, hours and time standards, breaks and prohibited jobs. The Oklahoma Child Labor Law adopts standards for children between the ages of 14-17 employed in non-farm jobs. The law determines what occupations are injurious to the health or morals or those jobs especially hazardous to life and limb to children. Farm jobs are exempt from any provisions of the Oklahoma Child labor act.
