    i can't say for sure but i recall reading that a person can have any age worker if they are the children of the owner... there is a special tax form that has to be filed though...but i would suspect that if the business had liability insurance there might be a problem with anyone under the age of 18 or whatever the insurance states (may be 21) ... but i would think that it is legal.

    Why don't you just work for yourself? Or does your dad have his own business? I believe you should be able to do this legally.
