WORK PERMIT FOR STUDENTS

Many students enter the world of work as minors (under 18 years of age). Students work for a wide variety of reasons—to earn income, gain on-the-job experience, or connect what they are learning in the classroom to the real world.

Minors employed in the state of California must have a Permit to Employ and Work (commonly referred to as a “work permit”). Work permits are typically issued by the school where the student is enrolled. Work permits indicate the location of the employer as well as the number of hours a minor may work.

 
Work Permits are issued through the Assistant Principal's Office.
Please contact Mrs. Markel, the Assistant Principal's secretary at (909) 594-1333 ext. 43623. 
 
* Print out a copy by clicking on the PDF form below or pick one up at the school office. Once the form is filled out you will need to
sign the form and get the signature of your parent and of your employer.
 
* If you have an on-going job, work permits need to be renewed each school year.
 
* You no longer need a work permit once you graduate from high school or turn 18.
 
 
The work permit is for your protection and safety. It ensures that employers carry worker compensation insurance. It reminds employers that a student's first job is school and a paid job is secondary. Also, that students are not allowed to work late hours on a school night.
