No Legal Action in ‘Jon & Kate’ Child Labor Case

But a portion of the proceeds from the now-canceled reality show must be put into a trust fund for the children

Child-labor permits should have been obtained for the children appearing on the TLC television show "Jon & Kate Plus 8," but the state will not take legal action against the producers, Pennsylvania regulators have concluded.

No action will be taken provided a portion of the proceeds from the now-canceled reality show are put into a trust fund for Jon and Kate Gosselin’s children and child-labor permits are obtained for future filming, the state Department of Labor & Industry said in a five-page letter obtained Wednesday.
