Permission to Work Form for Minors

 

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, the minimum age of employment is 14 years of age.  In addition, the number of hours worked by minors is limited for those under the age of 16.  The FLSA prohibits the employment of a minor in work declared hazardous by the Secretary of Labor.  Below is a brief description of employment restrictions as determined by the age of the individual.

 

A youth 18 years or older – may perform any job, whether hazardous or not, for unlimited hours.

 

A youth 16 or 17 years old – may perform any non-hazardous job for unlimited hours. 

  • The FLSA sets a 16-year-age minimum for employment in manufacturing or mining occupations.  Furthermore, this age minimum is applicable to employment in all other occupations unless otherwise provided by regulation or order issued by the Secretary of Labor.

 

A youth 14 and 15 years old – may work outside school hours in various non-manufacturing, non-mining, non-hazardous jobs.  They cannot work:
