Age Question on Employment Application
We're in the process of updating our employment application form. One of our current questions on the form is "Are you 18 years of age or older? Y/N". We often hire teens but need them to be at least 16 years of age due to the limitations applied by New York State Labor Law for the employment of teens younger than 16. We're considering changing the question to either "Are you 16 years of age or older? Y/N" or "Are you 18 years of age or older? Y/N If no, please list birthdate." Anybody have some wisdom to impart? Thanks in advance!
