Apply for a child employment permit

Find out how and when an employer must apply for a child employment permit. What hours a child can work on school days and during weekends and school holidays.

A child must be 13 or older to get a part-time job.

Employers need to download and complete an application form for children over 13 years of age to work part-time.

This form must also include the signatures of the child’s parent(s) or carer.

Application forms must sent to us within one week of the employment beginning.
