On Monday May 18, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-79 regarding youth work permits for students who are looking for employment this summer.
The Executive Order temporarily suspends the requirement that a student obtain an in-person application of a work permit. An issuing officer of a work permit may accept and examine an application through “alternative means” including e-mail, fax, or web-based form. The Executive Order also suspends the requirement for different color work permits for minors.
Students should print out the appropriate work permit based on their age and do the following:
Student fill out Section 1
Employer fill out Section 2
Email the form with Sections 1 and 2 filled out to email@example.com. We will fill out Section 3, then return it to you via email.
This order is effective through June 8.
