WORK PERMIT INFORMATION
1. Sunland, in compliance with the law, requires our students to have work permits when employed either for work experience or for personal experience. The process begins by requesting an application for a work permit from the school office. This form is then to be filled out by the potentially employing company and returned to the school. The school then issues the work permit.
2. If the student is working for work experience, the parent needs to give us a course description in order for the student to receive credit as a course. The type of work being done should be stated and the place of employment listed. A minimum of 10 hours must be worked per week to receive 5 credits per semester.
3. For student's accomplishing work experience for credit, an evaluation form will need to be filled out by your student's supervisor and sent back to us before credit will be awarded on the transcript. This will help in determining the student's grade for the semester.
Forms Required for the Employment of Minors:
B1-1, "Request for Work Permit and Statement of Intent to Employ Minor"
B1-4, "Permit to Employ and Work"
General Information and Instructions
Work regulations for minors are summarized per age. Form B1-1 must be filled in completely, including the signatures of parent or legal guardian and employer and the listing of the worker's compensation insurance carrier. Form B1-4 may be issued only when completed B1-1 is on file. Permits to work issued during the school year shall expire five days after the opening of the next succeeding school year. Work permits are issued for specific employers and locations.
Each time a student changes employers, a new permit must be issued. If a student works at two jobs, both jobs together may not total more than the legal number of hours specified for each age group and circumstance.
A day of rest from work is required if the total hours employed per week exceed 30, or if more than 6 hours are worked on any one day during the week. If an employer is covered by both state and federal laws, the higher standard-the provision which gives the most protection to employees-applies.
