1. I think it was her employer who violated the law.

2. You are correct. It was the church she worked for

and there is no exemption for churches in child labor laws.

I did volunteer service for my church when I was 12-13, but I did not receive pay. Once you have someone fill out a W-4, it changes everything. The potential for exploitation is there.
