Every owner, tenant, or operator of a farm employing thereon as agricultural labor any parent or guardian having minor children in his immediate care and custody shall post at a conspicuous place on the property or place of employment where it may be easily read by those employed, a notice stating that minor children are not allowed to work upon the premises unless legally permitted to do so by law and unless permits to work have been secured by the minor children from duly constituted authorities. All such notices shall be printed in both the English and Spanish languages.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)


In order that children may be disciplined and trained in habits of work and industry by their parents, guardians, or other persons standing in the place of parents, nothing in this chapter shall require a permit to work to be issued to any minor or require a permit to employ to be issued to the parent or guardian when the work or intended work to be performed by the minor is for or under the control of his parent or guardian and is performed upon or in connection with the premises owned, operated, or controlled by the parent or guardian. Nothing in this section shall be held to affect existing provisions of law which require permits to work to be issued to minors employed in manufacturing, mercantile, or similar commercial enterprises by their parents or guardians, or to do work which is otherwise forbidden by Section 1294, 1296, or 1308.5 of the Labor Code. All other provisions of law relating to compulsory education shall be effective as to the minor.
