With certain limited exceptions, you must acquire the required work permits before employing a minor. Permits are required year-round, even when school is not in session.1 A work permit limits the maximum number of work days and hours allowed for the minor and the spread of hours permitted. The spread of hours is the earliest time a minor can start work and the latest time they can end work each day. The permit can also contain limitations on other aspects of the minor’s work. The back of the work permit contains a summary of restricted occupations based on a minor’s age and legal restrictions on hours of work.
