Due to the current Safer at Home state mandate, Governor Evers has signed an executive order that changes some of the work permit requirements during the state of emergency. This means that if you need a work permit you should:
- Submit ALL of the above work permit requirements directly to your proposed employer (Mrs. Winters and Mrs. Burke cannot process work permits for you at this time.)
- Employers will then send information to our work permit email box email@example.com. This information includes:
- An attestation that they have reviewed the minor's proof of age and social security documents (but employers should not send us copies of these documents)
- The offer letter from the employer, and;
- The permission letter or countersignature from the parent or guardian.
- The order does not change the current legal requirements for hours per day or time of day, nor does it make any change to prohibited or hazardous employment rules. We will continue to enforce these rules during the emergency.
The emergency rule provides:
- The operations of permit offices and employers using minors under age 16 may continue to operate in the same manner as they did under the previous emergency order.
- The new end date for this process is September 1, 2020.
- Employers shall file a permit application on behalf of each minor employee and pay the associated fee no later than October 1, 2020.
- The application of this emergency rule is retroactive to May 11, 2020. The Department will decline to take any enforcement action against employers of minors who follow the process set forth in the emergency rule.
