(820 ILCS 205/11)
(from Ch. 48, par. 31.11)
Employment certificate issuance; duration; revocation.
(a) The employment certificate shall be issued by the Regional or District
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 Regional or District Superintendent of Schools, or the State Superintendent of Education, or his or her duly authorized agents, to issue the certificate.
