Youth Employment Certificates (Work Permits)
Work Permits are required for youths under 18 years of age who wish to work, unless there is an exemption from the youth employment requirements set forth by the North Carolina Wage and Hour Act.
The North Carolina Department of Labor has created an online application for youth to apply for work permits – YEC Auto. YEC Auto is a process designed to reduce wait time and paperwork for employees. When a youth contacts DSS, they will be advised to go to the NC Labor Website where they will find all the instructions for completing the form. The youth will need access to a printer in order to complete the process online. There will no longer be a need to go to a DSS office, unless the youth has no means or access to a computer and printer. In such case, the youth can obtain a hardcopy by visiting:
Granville County DSS
410 West Spring Street
Oxford, NC 27565
To obtain a Youth Employment Certificate online or learn more about Youth Employment in North Carolina, please visit the NC Department of Labor.
