Re: isnt it illegal for a store not to hire you if your under 18

your on the wrong end of the age spectrum here
they can do what they've done, its a legal thing with insurance and tax. if they were saying you were too old, then there may be some illegality to it.

They can turn you down if your under 16 unless you have a work permit.


But turning some one down for a job based on Religion/Race is Illegal.

Yeah, I work at Kmart and you only have to be 16 to work there, but you have to be 18 to use any heavy machinery (forklift, garbage compactor, etc.).  Mainly because of child labor laws, if a minor would get hurt using one of those, Kmart would get the **bleep** sued out of them faster than you can blink.

It's entirely legal.  I believe there are some laws requiring you to be 18 to work certain positions.

You may be thinking that it's age discrimination to deny anyone under 18.  Well, it isn't.  That's just the standards that they set.  Some stores don't want to have to deal with child labor laws, and, if you're under 18, those laws apply to you.  They are restricted as to how many hours you can work, how much work you can do, etc.  That, and sometimes stores want someone who isn't necessarily 18, but has at least their high school diploma.


well i do have my diploma
and i know its illegal to deny you a job if you are too old so whats the difference

You still have to be 18 to do certain jobs regardless if you have your diploma or not.  See my other post.

It depends what job. Most jobs require to be 16 to work. But some jobs have to be 18 or even 21. For example, my cousin is a waiter and she is only 20. She can't serve drinks.

Um, how about just waiting until you're 18 or older? Then there won't be an issue here.
