Updates as of March 24, 2021
- The amended law allows in-person, remote and electronic methods that are acceptable to the school or school district issuing the work permit. As such, all permits may be completely by scans and email.
- The amended law removed the yellow and pink paper distinctions. The act now uses a different means to distinguish work permits for youth under age 16 versus those 16-17 years of age. Landscape for under 16 and portrait for 16-17 years of age.
Minimum Wage Law:
Current Youth minimum wage is: $8.20/hour
$3.67/hour for tipped employees.
(TIPS Must = difference in min wage between $3.67 and $8.20 or employer MUST top you up to $8.20/hour)
Please review the list of work activities that you cannot perform as a youth employee for your own personal safety and view the websites below for more Teen Worker Health and Safety Information.
If you have youth employment questions please see Mrs. Rondello.
