Online Work Permit System

The Online Work Permit System is the tool used by accredited schools to issue work permits for minors in the State of Indiana. Work permits may only be obtained through accredited schools and cannot be issued by employers or city offices. If a minor attends a non-accredited school and is trying to obtain a work permit, he/she should follow the guidelines found in our Frequently Asked Questions.

Update to Indiana's Work Permit Laws: 3/16/2021

The State of Indiana is creating an Employer Registration system for any employer that employs five (5) or more minors. Effective 7/1/2021, Indiana will no longer require work permits for minor employees. Employers will no longer be required to complete the “Intent to Employ” form, and schools will no longer issue work permits.

Employers will be responsible for maintaining an accurate list of all minor employees. If an employer has four (4) or fewer minor employees, registration will not be required. This registration does not have any impact on the work hour requirements for minors. All employers must still comply with the Teen Work Hour Restrictions.

Using the Online Work Permit System

The Indiana Department of Labor receives multiple requests each day for school users who have forgotten or misplaced their login information for the Online Work Permit System. To better assist our customers, we have established an Online Work Permit System Login Request. This online form is only available to accredited school users and will require your school's four-digit school code issued by the Indiana Department of Education.

If you are a new user to the Online Work Permit System, you may wish to view our online tutorial videos that will better explain each step in the Work Permit process. These videos may be found on our Forms and Publications page.

Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information. If you have more specific questions about the Online Work Permit System, please e-mail the Bureau of Youth Employment at or call (317) 232-2655.
