Working papers are required for any minor (under 18 years old) working in the State of New Jersey. Any New Jersey minor seeking employment outside of the state must obtain working papers from the respective state (i.e. minor students seeking employment at Sesame Place or Oxford Valley Mall must obtain working papers from a Pennsylvania school).
If you are working within the state of New Jersey you will need the New Jersey Department of Education/A300 Combined Certification Form (working papers), available in the Counseling Office at Ewing High School. Office hours are 7:30 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. when school is in session and 8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. during the summer. The Guidance Office can be reached at 609-538-9800, ext. 2111.
