|Subject:||Work Permits for Minors|
|In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many regulations across our Commonwealth were suspended to allow the government to continue working and serving the people during the public health crisis. We have learned a lot over the past year, and we have found that some of these regulations can be suspended permanently in order to better serve the changing needs of individuals.
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that would amend the Child Labor Act to permanently suspend the requirement for minors seeking a work permit to sign the permit in the presence of the issuing officer. This legislation would also allow for the issuing officer to conduct the examination portion of the application via video conferencing software.
Please consider joining me and cosponsoring this important legislation.
Introduced as HB1829
