The attached forms may be downloaded for use for parents/guardians/employers when applying for the necessary work permit for 13-16 yr olds who wish to engage in part time work whilst they are still of compulsory school age.
It is against the law to work without a permit whether the work is paid or unpaid and there are hours and duties which they may and may not undertake, anything outside this criteria is against the law.
Once the application form is completed and returned to us for approval the employer will receive a laminated permit which they must keep in a place of safety, and the child will also receive a work permit card.
