Answer #1

in most cases you’ll have to be 16 to get a job unless you can work in a family owned shop or something.

Answer #2

You have got to be kidding. Is not love built on trust. If you marry him will he ever let you have friends or out of the house. I say it is your life and already you are letting someone tell you how to live it. Come on Sister!!!

Note this is not an exhaustive list and hence for accuracy you should check with your local guardian or legal advisor (at school or at any social center). Also be aware the each State & Country may have different laws that cover teenagers working conditions. Timings: Teenagers below 14 years old are usually not encouraged to work in offices. For those above 14 and above they should not be working at night. The legal hours are any time between 7 am to 7 PM ‘ of course ensuring that school is taken care of. Those between 16-19 years of age can be free to work as much and as long as they please. Howevergirls should always be wary and careful when working nights as crime increases at night. Work areas: Teenagers may work anywhere they can be engaged with the exception of places where they could endanger themselves or others, such as construction sites, repair sites or garages, chemical and other types of processing, mining, messenger jobs, warehousing, adult clubs and bars. Social security number: There are places where teens need a social security number to receive paymentTaxes: Most of the time teen jobs do not involve tax payments and need not have any dedication in the paychecks. However you need to consult the local IRS to ascertain this. Each state and country has its own set of rules and what is valid in one may not be in another. Do not take anything for granted. Keep in mind that legal aspects are serious matters and you do need complication with the law. Check and be sure you fulfill all the legal formalities applicable for teenagers before you even apply for work. Ask the help of a responsible adults, such as your parents, teachers, or relatives and seek out the correct answers - >> no such thing as a stupid question <<
