Colorado Rules for Employing Minors
Employers in Colorado must conform with these state rules relating to the employment of minors.
In Colorado, an employer that wants proof of the age of any minor employee or prospective employee may require the minor to submit an age certificate.
The superintendent of a school district is authorized to issue age certificates. Superintendents, principals or headmasters of independent or parochial schools may also issue age certificates to minors attending such schools.
Minors 14 or 15 years of age who wish to work on school days during school hours must secure a school release permit from the school district superintendent or some other person designated by the board of education.
