Synopsis: Job interviews have traditionally been social in nature and heavily reliant on feeling and subjective perceptions. While these interviews are comfortable for many managers, they aren't very effective and open the door to potential legal trouble.

It sets requirements on the minimum wage, overtime rules and sets age restrictions on work and age restrictions on certain dangerous types of labor.

It's critical that all of the management of every organization understand the law, so that they can apply it correctly and avoid substantial penalties and lawsuits.
