Changes to the Code of Virginia (Sect. 40.1-92) went into effect on July 1, 2013 concerning the issuance of employment certificates to youth.  The documents necessary to process a child labor permit can all be found on the website above.  Children and their parents will no longer need to visit their local schools to have an Issuing Officer sign their paperwork.  Instead, parents may acess the forms directly from the Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) website (above).  Detailed instructions for this new process are also included on this website.
