Employers in Kansas must conform with these state rules relating to the employment of minors.
In Kansas, persons, firms or corporations employing minors under the age of 16 must be required to first obtain and keep on file a work permit, accessible to any person charged with enforcement of the child labor law. A work permit is not required for minors enrolled in or attending any secondary school within the state.
The superintendent of school or a representative authorized by the superintendent (or a judge of the district court) will issue a work permit only after receiving, examining, approving and filing:
Permits may be revoked by the state labor commissioner if it appears to the commissioner that the permit has been improperly or illegally issued or that the physical or moral welfare of the minor could be best served by revoking the permit.
