Regional Office of Education (ROE)
Services -- Work Permits

The Illinois Child Labor Law requires employers to secure and keep on file Employment Certificates (work permits) for children under 16 years of age. The Regional Superintendent acts as an issuing officer for the Department of Labor. The permits are issued after: the issuing officer is satisfied that the employment will serve the best interest of the minor; upon application in person of the minor desiring employment accompanied by the parent, guardian, or custodian of the minor; and after the other requirements of the Law have been met. (Sec. 12, IL Child Labor Law).
