The Pennsylvania Child Labor Law requires minors to obtain work permits prior to beginning work.
York Suburban School District, as an agent for the Commonwealth of Pennsyvania, issues work permits for minors (ages 14-17) living within the boundaries of the district regardless of which school they attend. If you live outside of York Suburban School District, please contact your home district to obtain a work permit.
Work Permit Application
(Application forms are also available in the High School Main Office.)
INSTRUCTIONS FOR WORK PERMIT
Section A is to be completed by the applicant (except the signature block for the Issuing Officer).
Section B is to be completed and signed by the applicant's parent or legal guardian.
When the application is complete, please bring it to the High School Main Office along with one (1) form of legal identification that shows the applicant's name and birthday (Driver's License, Birth Certificate, Baptismal Certificate, Passport, etc.). A permit is usually issued immediately.
State law requires the presence of the student to sign the Work Permit in the presence of the issuing officer.
