  • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Description: Section 3(1) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides that an employer may protect against unwitting employment of oppressive child labor by obtaining a certificate of age certifying that a youth meets the FLSA minimum age requirements. Section 11(c) of the FLSA requires that all employers covered by the Act make, keep and preserve records of wages, hours and other conditions and practices of employment with respect to their employees. Form WH-14 is an application for a Federal Certificate of Age. Without the information provided with the application, there would be insufficient proof of age to issue a certificate.
