Notice of Change to Annual Employment Certificate

For Minors 14 through 17 Years of Age


An employer who hires minors must apply to the Bureau of Labor and Industries for an annual Employment Certificate EACH YEAR. 
 
Any changes to the duties performed by the minors or locations where minors will be performing work during the permit year must be reported within 15 days to the Bureau by submitting a completed Notice of Change to Annual Employment Certificate.
 
The Bureau will approve or deny any changes in duties, and if the employment complies with all laws and rules for the employment of minors, an Amended Employment Certificate will be issued to the employer.  (An Amended Employment Certificate will not be issued if the only change is to add an additional location.)  A copy of this amended certificate must be posted at each of your business locations.
 
An employer must retain the validated Amended Employment Certificate during the period of time for which the original certificate was issued.
 
If it appears that the employment will violate any law or rule pertaining to the employment of minors, the application will be denied and returned to the employer. 
 
Upon notification that an Employment Certificate is being denied, the employer must immediately reassign any affected minor to perform approved duties or terminate the minor's employment.
 
If you have questions regarding the application of the child labor laws to your business, you may contact the Bureau of Labor and Industries, Technical Assistance Unit in Portland at (971) 673-0824 for clarification.
