Every issuing officer issuing an employment or an age certificate or special permit, shall send immediately to the Department of Labor at Trenton, a duplicate of the certificate or permit and the original papers upon which the certificate or special permit was granted. The department shall examine and promptly return to the issuing officer the said original papers and shall keep on file the duplicate of said certificate or permit. Whenever there is reason to believe that an employment or an age certificate or special permit was improperly issued, the Commissioner of Labor shall notify the Commissioner of Education and the board of education of the school district in which the certificate was issued. The board of education of the school district may cancel any employment or any age certificate or special permit issued by it, and shall cancel the same when directed so to do by the Commissioner of Education. Whenever any employment certificate has been cancelled, the board of education cancelling the same shall immediately notify the Commissioner of Education, the Commissioner of Labor and the person by whom the child is employed, of its action, and such employer shall immediately upon receiving notice forward the certificate to the board of education. All birth certificates, baptismal certificates, passports, insurance policies or other original papers submitted in proof of age shall be returned to the minor upon request after they have been returned to the issuing officer by the Department of Labor and after the issuing officer has transcribed for his files information pertinent to the issuance of the certificates. The Commissioner of Labor and the issuing officer may destroy all employment and age certificates and special permits or copies thereof when the birth dates set forth in such certificates and special permits are more than twenty-one years before the date of destruction.
