They also recommend that employers get a certificate of age from any teen they employ. Rockhill says there are several restrictions on work hours for those who haven’t yet celebrated “Sweet Sixteen.” They can only work between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. seven days a week. June first through Labor Day, they can work until 9 p.m.Rockhill says the rules don’t apply for kids who work for their parents.For more information you can call the Iowa Labor Division at 515-281-8493.
