Requirements for Employment of Minors

  • A work permit is required before anyone under the age of 16 is allowed to work in any job, with the exception of agriculture or domestic service work. The minimum age for employment is 14, except for agriculture and domestic service.
  • 16- and 17-year-old minors do NOT need to obtain a work permit prior to beginning work. Work permits will not be issued for minors ages 16 or 17.
    • State law prohibits the use of minors to perform hazardous work. Prohibited employment provisions still apply to work that 16- and 17-year-old minors can be employed to perform.
