Labor Laws Also Apply to Seasonal Workers, Says SBA Blogger
Laws that cover harassment, discrimination, and workplace health and safety apply to seasonal workers just as they do to any other employee. Beesley says. Likewise, under the Fair Labor Standards Act part-time and full-time employees have equal rights concerning minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping and child labor.
Statutory benefits and taxes such as unemployment insurance, Social Security/Medicare, workers compensation insurance (and in Hawaii medical plan coverage and temporary disability insurance) also are applicable.
