(820 ILCS 205/11) (from Ch. 48, par. 31.11)
    Sec. 11. Employment certificate issuance; duration; revocation.
    (a) The employment certificate shall be issued by the City or County Superintendent of Schools or by their duly authorized agents and shall be valid for a period of one year. The person issuing these certificates shall have authority to administer the oaths provided for herein, but no fee shall be charged. It shall be the duty of the school board or local school authority, to designate a place or places where certificates shall be issued and recorded, and physical examinations made without fee, as hereinafter provided, and to establish and maintain the necessary records and clerical services for carrying out the provisions of this Act.
    The issuing officer shall notify the principal of the school attended by the minor for whom an employment certificate for out of school work is issued by him.
    The parent or legal guardian of a minor, or the principal of the school attended by the minor for whom an employment certificate has been issued may ask for the revocation of the certificate by petition to the Department of Labor in writing, stating the reasons he believes that the employment is interfering with the best physical, intellectual or moral development of the minor. The Department of Labor shall thereupon revoke the employment certificate by notice in writing to the employer of the minor.
    (b) In situations where a minor from another state seeks to obtain an Illinois employment certificate, the Department shall work with a City or Regional Superintendent of Schools, or the State Superintendent of Education, or his or her duly authorized agents, to issue the certificate. The Superintendent may waive the requirement in Section 12 of this Act that a minor submit his or her application in person, if the minor resides in another state.
