Work permits for students

Published June 2015

Governor Branstad signed HF397 relating to Child Labor Work Permits into law May 7. Effective today (June 1), school administrators will no longer be issuing Iowa Child Labor Work Permits. Youth, parents and employers will now complete a simplified form. The form and instructions are available on the Iowa Division of Labor website. Make the form available to students and parents who visit your offices. Continue to process work permits that have been started by the school.
