If you are under 18 years of age and want to work in the State of New Jersey, you need working papers each time you are hired by an employer. Working papers can be obtained through the Guidance Department at Allentown High School. We can give blank forms to and complete working papers for all students who currently attend Allentown, as well as students who reside in the Upper Freehold Regional School District but do not attend Allentown. Working papers are completed from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm on Mondays-Thursdays and 7:00 am to 2:30 pm on Fridays. (Summer Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00-2:30). These instructions should help you out when filling out the working papers form in case you forget the instructions given to you by guidance staff.
Once you have filled in all areas listed above, bring your completed working papers to the Guidance Office. As per state law, Guidance cannot process the papers unless ALL AREAS are filled in prior to turning them in! You will receive the white copy of your working papers back to give to your employer.
Working papers are submitted to the State of New Jersey once a month. Guidance submits the yellow copy to the State (or a photocopy if no 3-part forms are available) and keeps the pink copy (or a photocopy if no 3-part forms are available). If the State of New Jersey finds any problems with your working papers, they will return them to Guidance and you will be called down and have any problems explained to you. The working papers can then be re-submitted the following month. If you have any questions about this process, please speak to Mrs. Baker or Mrs. Essl in the Guidance office.
