Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: If I've graduated from high school, do I need a work permit?
A: No. Once a minor is no longer subject to the state's compulsory education laws, he/she is not considered a minor for purposes of the state's child labor laws (labor code 1286[c]). Therefore, a high school graduate does not require a permit and may work in any occupation.
Q: When do work permits expire?
A: ALL work permits expire August 13th, 2018. Work permits issued during the summer and past school year, providing you remain with the same employer, must be renewed by August 13th.
Q: Is my work permit job specific?
A: YES! Every time you get a new job, you need a new work permit!
