Education is the Foundation

We commit to providing innovative public education environments for students, their parents and teachers by empowering them to collaboratively create learning opportunities which will develop responsible and contributing members of society.

Overview

  • Entertainment industry permits are required for children of all ages who are employed in the entertainment industry.
  • Permits expire every six months.
  • Permits are recommended even if your student is not actively working or auditioning.
  • IEM schools approve or deny permission to apply for the permit.  The state issues the permit.
  • Both the recommended online method (fast) and optional method (slow) are included below.

Steps Families Need to Complete - Recommended Online Method

This online method results in the quickest processing time.

1. Notify your ES that your student is interested in obtaining an entertainment industry work permit.  Your ES will submit your work permit request through a work permit approval/denial survey which will be reviewed by our Guidance Department.

2. Begin the entertainment industry work permit application at the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement website using the process outlined in green in the following screen shot.  If you have multiple students needing permits, you will need to complete this process for each student.

3. After completing the online process on the state website, an Application for Permission to Work in the Entertainment Industry will be generated in PDF format (see example below).  Please send this to your ES for submittal.  You do not need to sign.

 4. Within 5 business days, IEM will send you an email indicating whether our Guidance Department approved or denied your permit request.

    • If your permit request is approved, the email will contain a signed and stamped Application for Permission to Work in the Entertainment Industry
    • If your permit request is denied, the email will state so.  Please consult your ES for further details.

5. Submit the IEM signed application for permission to the state in order to receive the official work permit.  Please consult the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement website for submission instructions.

Steps Families Need to Complete - Optional Method

This method will require you to submit the application with original (wet) signatures to the CA Department of Industrial Relations which will require a longer processing time.

1. Notify your ES that your student is interested in obtaining an entertainment industry work permit.  Your ES will submit your work permit request through a work permit approval/denial survey which will be reviewed by our Guidance Department.

2. Download and complete a blank, non-watermarked Application for Permission to Work in the Entertainment Industry.  DO NOT SIGN.

3. The parent/student will provide their completed but unsigned work permit request form to directly their ES (whether by mail, email, fax, in person, etc. PDFs only, no photos/jpegs).

4. Within 5 business days after receipt, IEM will send you an email indicating whether our Guidance Department approved or denied your permit request.

    • If your permit request is approved, you will receive a courtesy email indicating so as well as an IEM signed copy. DO NOT SUBMIT THIS COPY TO THE STATE.  You will receive the officially IEM signed application by mail.  SUBMIT THE MAILED ORIGINAL TO THE STATE.  
    • If your permit request is denied, the email will state so.  Please consult your ES for further details.

5. Submit the IEM signed application for permission to the state in order to receive the official work permit.  Please see the application for instructions on how to submit to the state.
