'Jon & Kate Plus 8' producers won't be charged for labor complaints

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry decided not to file charges against the producers of TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8, who were being investigated for violating child labor laws, People reports. The court mandated last month but made public today that from now on, the producers must secure child permits if they want to film the kids and that a percentage of profits must be placed in their trust fund. Kate’s brother and sister-in-law were due in court today to speak out against the show, while state lawmakers are reviewing child labor laws for film and TV. Jon tweeted: “The allegations made today by Kevin and Jodi Kreider have not been my experience at all during the production of Jon & Kate Plus 8.”
