WORK PERMITS

In light of the COVID 19 school closure, Willoughby Eastlake will no longer process work permits at the Board of Education offices.  If you are in need of a work permit, please follow the procedures below.

How can students go about obtaining a work permit under Ohio’s Minor Labor Laws if schools are closed?

According to the Ohio Department of Commerce, if a minor has all necessary paperwork completed and is unable to get the permit processed due to school closure, the completed paperwork may itself stand in the place of the physically printed permit. Employers should keep the paperwork on file, just like they would the permit. The formal permit should be processed as soon as the school is reopened.

As a reminder, hour restrictions outlined in Ohio Revised Code Section 4109 are still in place for any week that was not a pre-planned school holiday (i.e., spring break) and the prohibited/hazardous occupation restrictions are still active. 

For questions, call the Division of Industrial Compliance's Bureau of Wage and Hour Administration at 614-644-2239 or email [email protected]
