Work Permit

Students needing work permits are required to obtain an Intent to Employ form from your employer.  The employer will need to fill out the Intent to Employ form and sign the document.   The student and guardian will also sign the Intent to Employ form prior to bringing that document to the school.

Our school will process the completed information through the Indiana Department of Labor and print a work permit for the student to sign and return to the employer.

 

IMPORTANT: AFTER JULY 1, 2021 SCHOOLS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CREATE WORK PERMITS FOR STUDENTS.  SEE THE YES REQUIREMENT STUDENT MEMO BELOW.

Effective Thursday, July 1, schools will no longer issue work permits for minor employees (under age 18). Instead, employers who employ five or more minor employees will now be responsible for tracking and reporting minor-employee information via the state’s Youth Employment System (YES). This change in Indiana law will help make tracking and reporting youth-employment information more efficient and streamlined. The new requirement will not impact the state’s work-hour requirement for minors, and all employers must still comply with the Teen Work Hour and Prohibited and Hazardous Occupation restrictions for minors. More information is available here, including a memo for students. Please contact youthemployment@dol.in.gov with questions.
