Employers in Georgia must conform with these state rules relating to the employment of minors.
In Georgia, minors between the ages of 12 and 16 may not work without a certificate of age and fitness issued by the local superintendent of schools or by the principal administrative officer of a private school.
A similar certificate is required for persons age 16 to 18 to work between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.
Georgia requires that minors' employment certificates be accompanied by a letter from a school administrator indicating that the minor is enrolled in school full time and has a good attendance record for the current year. The letter must be updated annually and included with the minor's employment certificate in the minor's employment file.
