13 ncac 12 .0401             CERTIFICATION OF YOUTHS

(a)  Unless exempted by the Wage and Hour Act, all employees

under 18 years of age must obtain a youth employment certificate prior to

starting work.  Where there is no employer‑employee relationship, a youth

is not employed as a worker and a certificate is not required. 

(b)  Youths who reside in homes for dependent children may

perform domestic activities without being considered employees. Such activities

include personal care, maintenance of living quarters, work around the

residence or its farm and other activities normally performed by children when

living at home and under direct parental control.

(c)  A youth employment certificate is valid only for the

employer specified on the certificate.  This certificate is valid at all locations of this

employer.  A new certificate must be obtained for each new employer. A

certificate remains valid for a youth who terminates employment but then

resumes work at the same place of employment.
