THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN ENACT:

 

     Sec. 4. (1) Except as provided in subsection (3), a minor

 

shall not be employed in an occupation regulated by this act until

 

the person proposing to employ the minor procures from the minor

 

and keeps on file at the place of employment a copy of the work

 

permit or a temporary permit. The work permit shall be issued by

 

the issuing officer of the school district, intermediate school

 

district, public school academy, or nonpublic school at which the

 

minor is enrolled, and a copy of the work permit shall be placed in

 

the minor's permanent school file for as long as the minor is

 


employed. A temporary permit is valid for 10 days from the date of

 

issue. A work permit may be issued by the school district in which

 

the minor's place of employment is located, or by the public school

 

academy or nonpublic school nearest that place of employment. An

 

issuing officer may administer oaths in relation to work permits.

 

     (2) Immediately after the termination of the minor's

 

employment, the employer shall return the permit to the issuing

 

officer.

 

     (3) The work permit requirement of subsection (1) does not

 

apply to any of the following:

 

     (a) A minor 13 years of age or older who is employed in

 

farming operations involving detasseling, roguing, hoeing, or any

 

similar act involved in the production of seed. This exception

 

applies only when a minor is employed during school vacation

 

periods or when the minor is not regularly enrolled in school. An

 

employer shall keep on file at the place of employment evidence of

 

the age of any minor employed under this work permit exception.

 

Evidence of the age of the minor shall be established as provided

 

in section 5(b).

 

     (b) A minor who is performing work as an unpaid volunteer for

 

an organization that is recognized as tax-exempt under, or whose

 

purposes, structure, or activities are exclusively those that are

 

described in, section 501(c)(3) of the internal revenue code, 26

 

USC 501(c)(3).

 

     (c) A minor who is performing work as an unpaid volunteer for

 

a fair or exhibition operated and managed under 1929 PA 11, MCL

 

46.151 to 46.153, or held by an agricultural or horticultural

 


society under 1855 PA 80, MCL 453.231 to 453.240.

 

     (4) A work permit exception in subsection (3) does not provide

 

an exemption from any other provision of this act.
