Fans aren’t the only ones concerned about all of the cameras following the Gosselin children around on Jon & Kate Plus Eight. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry is checking to make sure that there aren't any laws being broken! While viewers seem to think that it might be time to give the kids some privacy- especially while Jon and Kate work out their marital woes, the Department of Labor is concerned about the children's safety.
Troy Thompson, Spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry told me that after receiving a complaint an investigation has now been opened into whether any child labor laws are being broken.
In a statement to Showbiz Tonight, a TLC Spokeswoman says,
“TLC fully complies with all applicable laws and regulations. Jon and Kate + 8 is no exception. For an extended period of time, we have been engaged in cooperative discussions and supplied all requested information to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor. We will continue to engage the appropriate officials and meet any standards or regulations that are applicable to TLC productions.”
We will have much more on this developing story tonight on Showbiz Tonight at 11pm Eastern and Pacific on HLN.
