LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2388, Chu. Employment: minors.
Existing law regulates the employment of minors in the entertainment industry and requires the written consent of the Labor Commissioner for a minor under 16 years of age to take part in certain types of employment. Existing law makes it a crime to employ or for a parent or guardian to permit the employment of a minor in violation of these provisions.
Existing law exempts from these employment of a minor provisions the appearance of a minor in a radio or television broadcasting exhibition, if the minor does not receive compensation directly or indirectly, the engagement of the minor is limited to a single appearance lasting not more than one hour, and an admission fee is not charged for the radio broadcasting or television exhibition.
This bill would expand the above described exemption to include digital exhibitions under those conditions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
