For information on how to obtain an Employment Certificate (formerly known as a Worker's Permit), please see the presentation below, created by Mrs. Zimmon.

Youth Employment Certificates are issued via the following options for employment in the Commonwealth of Virginia:

Option 1 Electronic – The Virginia Electronic Employment Certificate System enables youth, employers and parents/guardians to electronically submit the application forms required for the issuance of an employment certificate. Upon completion of all 3 sections, generally the system will issue permits within 24 hours of your request.

Option 2 Manual - The paper application process for an employment certificate requires submission of two documents; a Permission for Employment form and an Employer Intent to Employ form to the Labor and Employment Law Division. Normal processing time is 7 to 10 business days.

If you have any further questions, please contact Mrs. Zimmon!
