Work Permits

A work permit is required before anyone under the age of 18 is allowed to work in any job with the exception of agriculture or domestic service work (e.g. babysitting). Employers should have a work permit on file for the minor being employed before they may allow the minor to begin work. Big Foot High School issues work permits. Copies of the permit go to the employer and the minor, in addition to the school district where the minor is enrolled.

Required Items

To obtain a work permit, the minor or parent must visit the BFHS office, bringing with them:

  1. Birth Certificate
    In lieu of a birth certificate, we may accept other legal proof of age. For instance, we may accept a valid driver's license/learner's permit for minors age 15-years-old and older, or an identification card issued by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation as proof of a minorís age. This means that we may now accept a duly attested birth certificate, a verified baptismal certificate, or a driverís license/learnerís permit or photo ID card issued by the Department of Transportation.

  2. Social Security Card
    We cannot accept a Social Security Number. The applicant must present the minor's actual Social Security Card.

  3. Hiring statement from the employer
    This statement explains the minor's job duties and hours of work.

  4. Written Parent's Consent

  5. $10.00 Fee
    The $10.00 fee for the permit must be reimbursed to the minor by the employer at the end of the first pay period.
