No Legal Action in "Jon & Kate" Labor Probe

Updated 12:32 p.m. EST

Pennsylvania regulators say child-labor permits should have been obtained for children appearing in the TV show "Jon & Kate Plus 8," but it won't take legal action against producers.

The Department of Labor & Industry released a letter Wednesday to Figure 8 Films and Discovery Talent Services that outlines conditions under which it's resolving its investigation.

The department says child-labor permits will be needed for any future filming and that a portion of the proceeds must go into a trust fund for the children. The letter was issued last month.

The state House Republican Policy Committee will hold a hearing Wednesday in the Philadelphia suburb of Horsham to discuss Pennsylvania's child labor laws and how they apply to film and television productions.

The TLC show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" documented the lives of Gosselin, her husband and their eight children at their Pennsylvania home before it was canceled last year. State labor officials investigated the production for possible violations of child labor laws but released no findings.

Gosselin's brother and sister-in-law are scheduled to testify along with former child actor Paul Petersen of "The Donna Reed Show."
