You must first HAVE a job to receive a work permit. Once you have been hired, have your employer fill out the Intent to Employ Request Form. They will need to sign the form and your parent will need to sign the form.

A separate work permit application specific only to the entertainment industry is attached (or go to http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/dlseform277.pdf) After completion by the parent and school representative (or district office during summer), this application will need to be mailed or presented to any office of the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement for issuance of your work permit. Work permits will be issued within 3 business days and mailed to you. Please include a pre-addressed, stamped envelope. The nearest office is located at 1515 Clay Street in Oakland.
