How to Obtain a Work Permit
With the acceptance of a job, a work permit is needed for students who are younger than 16 years old (16+ do not require a work permit).
The Department of Workforce Development's Equal Rights Division has developed a new online work permit application tool. The online application will be available to the parents of minors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any computer, tablet, smartphone, or similar device.
A parent can access the site using these instructions. Payment is made directly to the department through the application, using a credit or debit card or by ACH direct withdrawal. Once the permit application is complete, the department mails a paper copy of the permit directly to the employer.
