    In Texas no child under the age of 14 is allowed to work, unless the child is specifically exempted by the Texas Employment Commission. Some exempted fields of labor include performing in a radio, television, or theatrical production, delivering newspapers, agricultural work, work as part of a rehabilitation program, or other casual, nonhazardous employment under parental supervision. Even when it is permitted, children who are 14 or 15 years of age may work only eight hours each day and no more than 48 hours each week. In addition, children may work only certain hours during the school year. Employing a minor in violation of these laws is a Class B misdemeanor.
