My child needs a work permit...

To obtain a minor work permit, students/minors should use application forms, Part I and Part 2, to gather the necessary information and approvals from their potential employer and from their parents or legal guardian. Once this form is filled out completely, signed, it is then taken to the minor's school where a permit is issued based on the information on the form. Anyone (student, employer, or school personnel), may print a copy of the application forms to begin the process of obtaining a work permit. 

If you have questions about the process necessary to obtain a work permit, please see our FAQs, on the Ohio.gov Department of Commerce website. If you are still unsure of what steps you need to take, please contact your local school secretary for assistance.
