Youth employment is defined as the engagement of a minor 14 to 17 years of age to work by a person, firm, or corporation. The lawful employment of minors is an important part of shaping the future workforce and cultivating entrepreneurs. Employers of today play a big role in how productive the future labor force can be. Providing a positive work environment for minors will help them to transition into adulthood by establishing confidence and self-reliance as they learn responsibility, accountability, and good work habits, while acquiring the organizational and time management skills required to be a productive part of the workforce.
