63.478 certilicates were issued dur
i ing the year as compared with
55,713 in 1945. Handling such a
volume of applications would have
been practically impossible without
the splendid cooperation and as
sistance received lrom the county
departments of public welfare.
k 1 : 1 ',, in some states the issuance of
certificates is done by the schools
but it has long been felt in North
Carolina that the system used here
operates most smoothly and ef
fectively. The natural interest of
county welfare agencies in chil
dren, coupled with the fact that so
i many people ioor 10 me weiiare
department for information on em
ployment as well as a place to reg
ister complaints against employ
ment conditions, makes this local
agency the logical one to issue
There are few instances in
which the State child employment
standards and the federal Act dif
fer. There are some exceptions,
however, and no certificate will be
issued if the holder would be em
ployed under conditions prohibited
by the federal standards.
Issuing employment certificates
to minors involves a great deal of
investigation and clerical work on
the part of the staffs of 100 county
departments of public welfare.
Were it not for the facilities afford

lities provided by the welfare de
partments. Welfare units all over the State
should be commended for the ef
ficient manner in which they have
handled the issuance of employ
ment certificates during recent
years, especially for their fine
work during the war when the num
ber of minors certified for work
rose to an all-time high.
Even after the employment cer
tificates have been issued; the lo
cal welfare department may revoke
them if it is later found that the
place of employment is a breeding
ground for delinquency or injuri
ous to child health. There are oc
casional instances in which this ac
tion is taken by the welfare depart
ment. The Department ht 'tsaborhas fts
own investigative staff to check on
violations of the labor laws, but
some instances of violation of the
Child Labor Law are occasionally
investigated by the local welfare
such violations are referred to the
Department of Labor, whose inspec
tors are specifically trained in the
law and in methods of bringing
violators into compliance through
voluntary agreement or, if neces
sary, through legal action.
Applications for employment cer
tificates for minors must be ac
companied by a promise of em
ployment by the prospective em
ployer, evidence proving the child
is of proper age, a statement from
a physician as to his physical fit
ness, and the child's school record
from the school last attended. On
the basis of information contained
in these documents, the county
welfare department passes upon is
suance of the employment certifi
cate. The close contact of the welfare
departments with working condi
tions in the community makes it
easier for them to determine wheth
er a particular establishment offers
safe and healthy conditions of em
ployment for the minor than it
would be if permits were issued
from a district office or from

The increase was detected about
