INSTRUCTIONS FOR OBTAINING A WORK PERMIT

 

MASSACHUSETTS STATE LAW: ALL MINORS MUST OBTAIN AND HAVE FILLED OUT THE PROMISE OF EMPLOYMENT FORM FOR 14 THROUGH 17 YEAR OLDS BEFORE A WORK PERMIT CAN BE ISSUED.

Employment Permit Application forms (Promise of Employment forms) can be picked up at the Main Office, or downloaded HERE.

14 and 15 year olds: There are 4 sections that MUST be filled out and signed on the Employment permit Application before the Work Permit can be issued:
1. The first section is completed and signed by the employer.
2. The second section is completed and signed by the Doctor's office of Medical Office where the minor had a physical within the last year. We cannot accept a copy of a physical; this has to be signed by a physician according to State Law.
3. The third section is filled out and signed by the parent or guardian of the minor.
4. The fourth section is signed and dated by the minor.

16 and 17 year olds: There are 3 sections that must be filled out and signed on the Employment Permit Application before the Work Permit can be issued.
