Child Labor Laws were established to protect minors in the workplace. The labor laws require all minors under the age of 18 to obtain a work permit. The work permit, sometimes referred to as “working papers” or “employment certificates” can be obtained from my office in Guidance ( G200F).
This permit is only valid in New Jersey. To obtain a work permit, you must have a promise of employment (job offer). Once you have a job offer, obtain a pass from your teacher to come to my office or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send for you.
