Getting a Youth Work Permit

Wondering when and where young students desiring employment can obtain a work permit/employment certificate?

Pennsylvania has very clearly defined labor laws regarding minors (children) working and also stipulates how many hours in one day they may work.

Students in Pennsylvania may apply for a work permit by going to their school district administrative office. Students living in the City of Pittsburgh need not attend Pittsburgh public schools to apply for one at the Oakland Administration Building: 341 S. Bellefield Pittsburgh, PA 15213. 

All students will have to present documents for proof of age: driver’s license, identification card, birth certificate, passport, baptismal record or school ID, as long as it shows date of birth.
