Do I have to get new working papers? (please read)
I am 15 years old in Pennsylvania and have a job. I started when I was 14 so i got these blue colored working papers. I know that people who are 16 or over get issued yellow working papers. I did a little research and found this.
"What's the difference between a "blue card" and a "yellow card"?
Minors are issued work permits according to their age. Applicants who are under the age of 16 are automatically issued a "Vacation Employment Certificate", which is a yellow card. Minors who are over the age of 16 are issued a "Transferable Work Permit", which is a blue card. Since 14 and 15 year olds are subject to stricter labor laws, they are issued the vacation employment certificate and are required to renew the certificate every time they secure a new job, until they turn 16. Once they turn 16, applicants are able to receive the transferable work permit, which they can use for any job thereafter."
My question is that since I will be turning 16 in a couple of weeks, would i need to re-due my working papers since i will be 16 and can get a yellow card? Thanks.
