Working Papers Information

 

PA Child Labor Act

All students between the ages of 14 through 17 are required by Pennsylvania Labor Law to secure a Work Permit before they may begin to work. Exceptions to this law are 17-year-old students who have graduated or have officially withdrawn from school. Students who have reached age 18 do not need a work permit. If you are a minor, ages 14 through 17 and currently possess a valid work permit through North Penn School District, you may continue to use that permit to work. As of January 1, 2013, physicians and employers are not required to sign the application.
