Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: If I've graduated from high school or turned 18, 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. Once you turn 18, you are no longer considered a minor and do not need a work permit.
Q: When do work permits expire?
A: Work permits (including those issued in summer) expire August 14th, 2020. If you intend to work past August 14th, make sure you renew your permit before it expires.
Q: Is my work permit job specific?
A: YES! Every time you get a new job, you need a new work permit!
Q: Who can get a work permit?
A: Any student above the age of 12 can apply for a work permit. Counselor and/or Admin approval is needed for students with a GPA below 2.0, a D or F in a current class, 5 or more tardies, or multiple unexcused absences.
