The Department of Labor, its deputies and inspectors, may suspend any
certificate as an emergency action imperatively required for the public
health, safety and welfare of minors if in their judgment it was improperly
issued or if the minor is illegally employed. If the certificate is so
suspended the employer and all interested parties shall be notified of such
suspension in writing and such minor shall not thereafter be employed,
permitted, or allowed to work until a final order is issued by the Department
of Labor after a hearing either reinstating or revoking the certificate.
The hearing shall commence within 21 days after the date of any such
suspension. If the certificate is revoked the minor shall not thereafter
be employed, permitted or allowed to work until a new certificate
for the minor's employment has been obtained.
