Is A Work Permit Required For Employment Of A Minor?

Alabama issues work permits to minors 14 and older. Minors under age 14 cannot be issued permits, with the exception of 12­and 13­year­olds in newspaper delivery. Employers must have work permits on file for each employee less than 18 years of age, except for those in agricultural employment. For child actors and performers, no employment or age certificate required for persons under age 17. Permits are also required for 18­year­olds working in any capacity in, about, or in connection with a mine, coke breaker, coke oven, or quarry.
