  • Once the application has been completed and approved, it still requires a parent and youth signature.

     

  • Completed and signed certificates must be given to the employer on or before the first day of work.

     

  • The employer must verify the youth’s age, proposed job duties and any restrictions noted on the certificate.

     

  • The certificate must be maintained by the employer for two years after employment ends or until age 20, as appropriate.
