    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

    Q: If I am graduated from high school, do I need a work permit?

    A: 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, even if he/she in under 18 years old.

     

    Q: When do work permits expire?

    A: ALL work permits expire August 14th.  Work permits issued during the summer and past school year (2019-2020) must be renewed by August 14, 2020, even if you are continuing to work for the same employer. The process for renewing a work permit requires the same original steps as when you first obtained a work permit (steps above).

     

     

    HOURS OF WORK:

    The following restrictions and spread of hours are for permits issued for summer employment ONLY.

     

    16 and 17 year olds:

    8 hours per day/48 hours per week. Spread of hours- 5:00am-12:30am

     

    14 and 15 year olds:

    8 hours per day/40 hours per week. Spread of hours- 7:00am-9:00pm

     

    Work permits are processed in the College & Career Center. Here are the important details you need to know about work permits:

    • Students do not need a work permit to apply for a job - work permits are needed once a student has been hired.

    • Students need work permits if a) they are enrolled in high school AND if b) they are under 18 years old. Once a student turns 18, they do not need a work permit, even if they are still in high school. Once a student graduates from high school, they do not need a work permit, even if they are under 18 at the time of graduation.

    • Work permits can take up to 24 hours to process. If a student turns in a work permit application before 10am, they will most likely be able to pick up the work permit after school that same day. If a student turns in a work permit application after 10am, they will be able to pick up the work permit the next school day.

    • Before the Career Center receives the work permit application, it needs to have the following sections completed:

      • Student information section (including social security number)

      • Parent signature

      • Employer information section and signature

    • The amount of hours a student can work is not decided on by the Career Center, but by the State of California. A breakdown of the hours allowed, based on age, is on the back of the work permit application (or page 2).
