Work Permit Requirements
Work Permits are required for anyone under the age of sixteen (except minors employed in planting, cultivating or harvesting of field crops or other nonhazardous agricultural employment). The employer cannot allow the minor to perform any work until a permit has been received and approved by the Bureau of Labor Standards. In order to apply for a work permit, the minor must be:
- enrolled in school;
- not habitually truant or under suspension;
- passing a majority of courses during the current grading period;
- offered a job;
- supplying a copy of birth certificate and social security card when applying for permit; and
- accompanied by parent/guardian to sign form.
