Jon & Kate Child Labor Complaint Dismissed

Updated

TLC

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry will not be filing charges against Jon & Kate Plus 8 producers, who were under investigation for potentially violating state child labor laws.

According to a letter issued last month, but released Wednesday, producers must obtain child-permits if they wish to film the Gosselin children in the future. They must also allocate a portion of the proceeds into a trust fund for kids, the Associated Press reported.

Kate and I were doing what was best for our family,” Jon Tweeted Wednesday. “And it gave us an opportunity to spend quality family time together.”

Kate’s brother and sister-in-law Kevin and Jodi Kreider, who have spoken out against the show, were expected to testify Wednesday as Pennsylvania state lawmakers hold hearings to review child labor laws for TV and film production.

“The allegations made today by Kevin and Jodi Kreider have not been my experience at all during the production of Jon & Kate Plus 8,” Jon said in another tweet.
