Division of Regulation
The entertainment industry has special rules to ensure that minors are not employed under conditions that are either injurious or detrimental to their health, safety or education.
Employers of minors in the entertainment industry are required to obtain a Permit to Hire prior to employing any minor in Florida. An application for a Permit to Hire shall be made by submitting to the division a completed Application for Permit to Hire, DBPR Form FCL 1001. For detailed information, please refer to the Child Labor Rule 61L-2.006, Florida Administrative Code: Employment of Minors by the Entertainment Industry. For a copy of the Permit to Hire application, go to the top of the page and key on “APPLY FOR A LICENSE”. Double click the “Check here to” box. This will take you to the Application Center and the Child Labor applications.
Failure to complete any item in the application form after being requested to do so, or if the completed application form evidences work conditions that are hazardous or detrimental to the health, morals or education of the minor employee(s), shall be grounds to deny the application. Permits shall be limited in duration to the employer’s schedule of production, or tour within the state of Florida, not to exceed one year.
The Entertainment_Rule establishes the working conditions and limitations for minors employed in the entertainment industry.
