Hiring Teens for Employment... NOW!by Renton School District on June 4, 2020
Did You Know?
While schools are closed as a result of the Coronavirus and to prevent from spreading, L&I is considering these weeks with no school, as non-school weeks (school vacation) between March and until school begins again this fall of 2020.
The same requirements apply when hiring a young worker. Employers must apply for a minor work permit endorsement on their business license, have a completed Parent Summer Authorization form (school signature not required), and keep proof of age on file.
We encourage employers to be aware of and attentive to any online schooling obligations for teen workers they employ. Please ensure when hiring young workers that they are trained properly, young workers need specific training on how to stay safe in the workplace relative to virus protection.
