No legal action in 'Jon & Kate' labor probe

April 14, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Pennsylvania lawmakers have decided not to pursue legal action against the producers of "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Pennsylvania regulators say child-labor permits should have been obtained for the kids appearing on the show.

Pennsylvania officials are still reviewing the state's child-labor laws for TV and movie production.

Kate Gosselin's brother Kevin Kreider testified at a legislative hearing on the state's child-labor laws and how they apply to TV and movie production. He discussed his concerns about potential psychological damage to children on TV shows, including a lack of adult supervision and financial security.

Kate and Jon Gosselin have a court date next month on Jon's motion to get full custody of their eight children.

The Gosselins are now divorced, and Kate Gosselin has custody of the children. She currently appears on the hit ABC show "Dancing With the Stars" and has a new reality show in the works.
