I also worked in the local IGA I had a tax number and bank account at 15 I think it was.
Also did babysitting for family friends which was cash in hand but I think that is fine.

What kind of society have we become when we'll sue over an accident in a neighbour's yard - personal responsibility people, is it extinct? We need insurance now to have a kid mow our yard? Scary.
As to OP yeah it depends on the employer. Cash in hand = great for casual, face to face jobs like the above, but I think protection is warranted when the employer is a detached business and it should all be by the books - mainly for the kid's benefit.

What is your opinion on teenagers working for cash in hand?
Just a word of warning for anyone who has kids who work for cash from a business: my friend worked for our local Chinese restaurant and he only paid cash in hand. So he had all these teenagers working for him and then got busted by the ato and claimed that all the kids were "contractors" and so they all ended up having huge tax bills to pay as no tax had ever been paid! Especially bad for my friend who'd been working there since she was 16 and this all happened when we were almost finished uni :-O
