I’m trying to understand the laws and regulations around full time employment for college students. Can someone explain it to me?
It really depends on the student’s age, the type of work they will be doing, and whether they are enrolled in school full-time or part-time.
Generally speaking, a college student is legally allowed to work as a full-time employee if they are at least 18 years old and are not enrolled in school full-time. There may be some exceptions to this rule depending on the type of work the student will be doing and the state in which they live. For example, some states have child labor laws that may restrict the hours a student can work if they are under the age of 18.
If a college student is enrolled in school full-time, they may still be able to work full-time, but they may need to get permission from their school first. Additionally, the student may need to limit their work hours to ensure that they are still able to focus on their studies.
