What is a work permit?
A work permit is a legal document required by the state that allows a person between the ages of 14 and 18 to hold a job. The purpose of a work permit is to protect the student from illegal working conditions and keep the student in school.
How do I get a work permit?
You must have a job or a job offer to get a work permit and a 2.0 GPA or above. The contact person at Northwood during the school year is Mrs. Smith in the College and Career Center. Mrs. Smith’s email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is the process:
- Please see or email Mrs. Smith (room 1035) with the name, address, and phone number of the company you are working for
- She will give you a form to be signed by a parent, employer and you.
- You will bring the completed form back to Mrs. Smith
- She will have an Assistant Principal sign the form
- You will pick up the completed Work Permit.
Do I need a work permit for babysitting, yard work or paper routes? No
How often do I need to get a work permit?
Each time you are hired for a new job, a new work permit is necessary. All work permits expire shortly after school starts in August, even if you have the same job.
How many hours can I work?
16- and 17-Year-Old Students may work four hours on school days and eight hours on non-school days or days preceding a non-school day.
14- and 15-Year-Old Students When school is in session, 14- and 15- year-olds may work 3 hours per day, not to exceed 18 hours per week. You may also work 8 hours per day when school is not in session, not to exceed 40 hours per week.
