Michigan Department of Education Youth Employment

Recent Changes to the Youth Employment Standards Act, P. A. 90 of 1978 "Impacting Minors 16 and 17 Years of Age Work Permits and Training Agreements." Effective October 18, 2011, the Youth Employment Standards Act (YESA) was amended. Previously, the legislation indicated combined school and work week of 48 hours during the period school is in session. This change has implications for 16 and 17 year old minors who are currently in school and working under a work permit or a training agreement between the school and employer.

Click here to be directed to the Child Labor Law Youth Employment in Michigan web page.

Minors under 18 years of age must obtain a work permit or have their school complete a training agreement before starting work. Work permits can be obtained from the school the minor attends or the school district where the minor will be employed. If the minor changes jobs, a new work permit is required for the new employer. A work permit may be revoked for poor academic performance. A work permit is required even if the minor does not attend school.

Work permits are no longer available for bulk purchase from Michigan Center for Career & Technical Education; work permits are available for printing or download from the 'Youth Employment Forms Packet' section below. Note: CA-6 work permits must be printed on pink paper and CA-7 work permits must be printed on yellow paper. To be valid both CA-6 and CA-7 must have the front and back pages of the work permit printed.
