What is a work permit and where can I get one?
A work permit is a legal document required by the state of California that allows a person under 18 years of age to hold a job. You may get a work permit from Northview High School.
There are four steps in obtaining a work permit:
This website contains the basics about young worker health and safety for both teens and parents and has a link to a downloadable fact sheet "Are You A Working Teen?" in both English and Spanish.
- Obtain a Work Permit Application with the accompanying Work Permit Contract in the College and Career Center from Mrs. Worley or Download the Work Permit Contract and the Work Permit Application.
- Student and parent must read and agree to the terms of the Work Permit Contract attached to the front of the Work Permit Application. Fill out the student information at the top of the Work Permit Application, secure your parent/ legal guardian's signature required in the middle portion, and have your employer fill out the last section.
- Return the completed Work Permit Application/Work Permit Contract to Mrs. Worley where the work permit will be processed within 2-3 working days.
- Bring the completed work permit back to the prospective employer.
Students under the age of eighteen (18) are legally required to have a work permit on file with the school and their employer.
ALL WORK PERMITS MUST BE RENEWED AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERY SCHOOL YEAR. IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 PLEASE STOP BY THE COLLEGE AND CAREER CENTER AND RENEW YOUR WORK PERMIT.
During Summer, work Permit Applications are available in the NHS principal's office.
