Work Permits

The City of Columbus can issue work permits to minors under the age of 18.  Work permits are required for each employer that the minor child is working for.  The following items are required to obtain a work permit:

1.)  PROOF OF AGE.  Duly attested birth certificate, verified baptismal certificate, driver's license (in state only) with photo or a WI DOT issue photo ID card.
2.)  LETTER FROM EMPLOYER.  Letter should contain the employer's name, address and phone number.  It should state the minor's job description, hours of work, time of day minor will be working.
3.)  LETTER OF APPROVAL.  The minor's parent, guardian or court-appointed foster parent must consent to the employment.  This can be done by sending in a separate letter or signing the letter from the employer.
4.)  SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.
5.)  FEE:  The fee is $10.00 which is required to be reimbursed the minor by the first paycheck.
