Work Permit Requirements for Employment of Minors
         •    A work permit is required before anyone under the age of 16 is allowed to work in any job with
             the exception of agriculture or domestic service work.
         •    Employers must have a work permit on file for the minor being employed before they may
              allow the minor to begin work.

How to Obtain a Work Permit:
To obtain a work permit, either the minor alone or the minor and a parent must visit the permit officer, taking with them:
        •    the minor's birth certificate or other proof of age,
        •    the minor's social security card
        •    letter from the employer expressing intent to hire, on employer's regular letterhead,
             describing:
                           o    job duties,
                           o    hours of work,
        •    a written parents consent
        •    a $10.00 permit fee

Proof of Minor's Age
We may accept either a duly attested birth certificate, a verified baptismal certificate, or a driver’s license or photo ID card issued by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
