Student Work Permits

California law requires any student under the age of 18 to obtain a work permit. The hours a student may work vary according to age.

  • 15 years and under: When school is not in session, they may work no more than 8 hours on any day and 40 hours a week maximum.
  • 16 years and over: When school is not in session, they may work no more than 8 hours on any day and 48 hours a week maximum.
