Important Work Permit Information

  • “The Department has temporarily suspended the requirement that minors under the age of 16 have a work permit before beginning work. The emergency rule that authorizes this is valid through at least September 1, 2020.

     Instead of getting a permit, the minor may begin work if the employer emails information to the Department's work permit mailbox (workpermits@dwd.wisconsin.gov) including a statement that the employer has reviewed the minor's proof of age documents, a job offer from the employer including the hours and job duties of the minor, and the parents' consent for the minor to work.

     When the emergency rule expires, employers will be required to retroactively obtain work permits for minors employed during this period.”
