Yes, there are laws both federal and state that stipulate persons of specfied ages can or cannot work in certain business or areas of a business. For example, if someone who is under the state's legal age pertaining to alcohol and applies for a position in a food establishment where alchohol is served. Yes, if you're under 40, for the reasons Macky gave above. No, if you're over 40, because the law prevents discrimination based on age.

The legal drinking age in Ireland is 18. Under 18 can drink as long as the alcohol is purchased by a parent, but you might be asked to show proof that you are of age to drink.

I do not know for sure, but i just had my first interview with them and the hiring manager asked me if i was 18. So i am assuming 18 is the minimum age.

Answer.com is a world wide community. You need to state the country or location you are asking about. What may be legal where I am may not be legal where you are.

In many stores, you will be asked to show I.D. to prove that you are 18.

Since I'm not sure what you are asking, I will answer both scenarios:If the stepdaughter is of legal age (usually 18), and if you want her to live with you, then you and she both have every legal right to make that choice.But if, in your question, you are asking if you have to let her move in with you, then no, you do not. Once you and her father separate you are not obligated in any way towards your stepdaughter.

You need to be a little more specific? Are you asking about legal consent for sex, voting, drinking?

A 12 year old can do household chores. Hiring a 12 year old in the USA is illegal. I suggest you do not hire anyone under the age of 16 unless you want legal trouble. Why are you asking this question? are you running a sweat shop?

NO STORES! If you're 14 you are under legal working age. Ya gotta be 16.

Unsure what the question is asking. What "requirements?" What is meant by "legal"contract? Anyone of legal age (an adult) and mentally competent can obligate themselves by signing a contract.

14 is actually the legal age you can get a job at, but you can mow lawns, rake leaves, babysit, or help around with the neighbors. There are actually many ways to get a job when at the age of 13, but not legal jobs. We hope that this answer helped you out, thanks for asking!
