Parents and guardians may obtain a work permit by following the instructions below. Note that parents and guardians are required to pay the work permit application fee at the time of purchase. After the payment has processed the parent or guardian will receive an email confirmation and the permit will be printed and mailed directly to the employer. The minor's employer will receive the permit within five (5) business days. The minor may begin working upon receipt of the confirmation email.
Please note that if the icon is red, the permit has been revoked or suspended, the permit is unavailable for download and the minor is not legally eligible to work.
*Our office mails a physical copy of the permit to the employer listed on the application.
The employer must reimburse the $10.00 permit fee to the minor by no later than the date of the first paycheck. A copy of the permit will be mailed to the employer.
