With a few exceptions everywhere hires at sixteen. Try baby

sitting, walking dogs, and etc...

Actually, a work permit can be issued to any youth ages 14 or older

from their school or in Georgia, from a County School

Superintendent. The jurisdiction depends on the age (Federal = 14

& 15), the type of work being done (Federal = hazardous

occupations ages 17 & under; Federal = prohibited occupations

ages 15 & under). The rest of the regulations fall under state

jurisdiction. You can visit the Federal DOL website or your state's

DOL site for more information. There are also restrictions to how

much work can be done daily and/or weekly when school is in and

when school is out, again based on age (Federal). Also, if the

business is family owned, the rules are exempt except for

hazardous/prohibited occupations.

HOWEVER, as an HR professional, the above answer is figuratively

correct in that most employers won't hire employees under a certain

age.
