Agency: 'Jon & Kate' lacked child-labor permits

Child-labor permits should have been obtained for the children appearing on "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 yesterday by The Associated Press. "It's important to note that we did an investigation and we made sure the children were not in any danger or endangered as a result of the work they were doing," said Labor & Industry press secretary Troy Thompson.
