  • Work permits are required for all minors under the age of 18 to work in the State of Maryland.
  • Work permits are not issued to minors under the age of 14. (Unless the child is a model, performer or entertainer with a special permit (Word); en español (Solicitud para permiso especial de trabajo (Word). Special permits are issued only by the Commissioner's Office.)
  • Work permits are issued by the Division of Labor and Industry.
  • Work permits are not issued until the minor has been offered a job.
  • If the minor changes jobs, a new work permit must be obtained.
  • Employers are strongly encouraged to keep work permits on file for three years.
