Investigation findings: U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division investigators found Brito Enterprises of Tampa – operating as Chick-Fil-A Tampa Stadium – allowed 17 workers, ages 14- and 15-years-old, to work past 7 p.m. or more than 3 hours during a school day between Labor Day and June 1, in violation of the child labor provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Civil money penalties assessed:       $12,478 to address the child labor violations.                             

Quote: “Employers must familiarize themselves with the working conditions that come with hiring minor employees. While gaining meaningful work experience is a good thing, it should not interfere with a child’s educational opportunities,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Nicolas Ratmiroff in Tampa, Florida. “We encourage employers to access our website or contact the Wage and Hour Division to learn how to keep these young workers safe on the job.”

Background: Employers can contact the Wage and Hour Division at its toll-free number, 1-866-4-US-WAGE.
