How Can A Minor Obtain A Work Permit?

Work permits are not issued until the minor has been offered a job. The work permit allows the minor to perform certain duties for a particular employer. If the minor changes jobs, a new work permit must be obtained. The work permit form is obtained from the school; the minor completes some basic information and signs the permit. The minor's parent or guardian signs the permit. The work permit is taken to the employer who enters their name and address and describes the minor's duties. The employer signs the permit. The work permit is then taken to the Issuing Officer. Issuing Officers are required to verify the minor's date of birth. The validated work permit, with the Issuing Officer's signature must be in the employer's possession before the minor is permitted to work.
