SECTION .0400 ‑ YOUTH EMPLOYMENT
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.
