Work Permit

During the School Year

To obtain a work permit during the school year, take your fully completed work permit worksheet to your school's career center. They will use this worksheet to create the actual work permit that your employer will need. The turnaround time is 24 hours. 

 

Summer

Work Permit office hours 9:00-1:00 M-F.  If you need a work permit processed when schools are closed, take your fully completed work permit worksheet and ID to Student Services (Bldg B) at the District Office, 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.  It’s located on the northwest corner of the Sycamore Valley Road and Old Orchard Drive intersection.

 

Entertainment Industry

A separate work permit application specific only to the entertainment industry is available in the work permit locker below (or go here to get the Application) After completion by the parent and school representative (or district office during summer), this application will need to be mailed or presented to any office of the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement for issuance of your work permit.  Work permits will be issued within 3 business days and mailed to you.   Please include a pre-addressed, stamped envelope.   The nearest office is located at 1515 Clay Street in Oakland.

 

Graduates under Age 18

High school graduates under the age of 18, who are not subject to the compulsory education laws, are entirely excluded from permit requirements, work hour restrictions, and all occupational prohibitions. However, under federal regulation high school graduates may not be employed in an occupation prohibited to minors under 18 unless they have also completed a bona fide course of training in that occupation. [29 CFR 570.50] “Dropouts” are still subject to California’s compulsory education laws, and thus are subject to all state child labor requirements.
