THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA REQUIRES THAT ALL MINORS (A PERSON UNDER THE AGE OF 18) HAVE A WORK PERMIT ON FILE AT THE WORKSITE BEFORE THE EMPLOYMENT IS LEGAL
Exceptions: Possession of a High School Diploma or Student is 18 years old
A minor not attending school is not eligible for a California Work Permit
- Step 1: Download or pick up the Work Permit Application from the Student Services Office. To be eligible- student must have a GPA of 2.0 or higher, good attendance, good citizenship, and a job offer (you must have a job offer before you can obtain a Work Permit).
- Step 2: The work permit application, B1-1 form must be completely filled out in blue or black ink and must have the student's social security number. The application requires the signature of the student, the employer and the parent/guardian.
