Sections A thru D and Signature of Minor in Section F must be completed before we can process working papers. Please email your completed working papers to Ms. Jasmine Malloy, jmalloy@montclair.k12.nj.us. When working papers are completed, you will be emailed a copy. A verification meeting may be required. If needed, Ms. Malloy will send the student and guardians, listed in Genesis, a meeting date via Google Meet. Certification will be issued only after the school official is satisfied that the working conditions and hours will not interfere with the minor’s education (progress in school) or damage the minor’s health. The school may refuse to issue the employment certificate if such refusal would be in the minor’s best interest. Please note, it will take 1-2 weeks to complete all working papers.

Appendix A- Executive Order 103

For the duration of the Public Health Emergency declared in Executive Order No. 103 (2020), the provisions of N.J.S.A. 34:2-21.8 and N.J.S.A. 34:2-21.10, requiring the personal appearance of the minor, and, under certain circumstances, the minor’s parent or guardian, before school district issuing officers in order to apply for or sign employment certificates may be satisfied through the use of audio-visual technology. Each public school district shall develop and implement procedures to satisfy the statutory requirements without requiring in-person contact between the school district issuing official and the minor, under the following conditions:
a. During the application process, the child and the school district licensing officer may transmit a single copy of all required documentation by way of electronic transmission, fax, or any other means of transfer of 9 documents developed by the school district that avoids in-person contact, is secure, and maintains the confidentiality of the documents; b. The video conference shall be live and must allow for interaction between the child and the school district issuing officer, and when applicable, the parent or guardian. During the video conference, the child shall verify his or her identity, authenticate the documents submitted, and sign the application, in a way that is visible and audible to the school district issuing officer; and
c. Following the video conference, the child shall transmit the signed certificate, by electronic or other means as determined by the school district, to the issuing officer, who shall make the requisite copies and distribute the original and copies as required by N.J.S.A. 34:2-21.7. 8. Nothing in this Order shall be construed to require that the marriage or civil union licensing process or ceremony, or the minor employment certification process, occur through the use of audio-visual technology. Applicable public officials should make all reasonable efforts, consistent with the enhanced social distancing and mitigation practices detailed in this State’s Executive Orders, including but not limited to Executive Order No. 107 (2020), to accommodate applicants who may lack the technological resources necessary to engage in these processes through audio-visual means. Where in-person services are offered, public officials must similarly require participants and staff to wear cloth face coverings and must implement sanitization protocols, consistent with Executive Order No. 122 (2020). 9. To the degree that that they are inconsistent with this Order, the provisions of N.J.S.A. 37:1-2, N.J.S.A. 37:1-4, N.J.S.A. 37:1-7 and -8, N.J.S.A. 37:1-12, N.J.S.A. 37:1-12.1, N.J.S.A. 37:1-17, N.J.S.A. 34:2-21.8, and N.J.S.A. 34:2-21.10 are suspended for the duration of the 10 Public Health Emergency. Any provisions of these statutes that are not inconsistent with this Order remain in full force and effect. 10. This Order shall take effect on Monday, May 4, 2020 and shall remain in effect until revoked or modified by the Governor.
