Application for authorisation for a child to work
You must apply for authorisation if you wish to employ a minor under the age of 13. For example, you need authorisation for a child to rehearse or work in cultural or artistic events, as extras or artists, or at sporting or advertising events.
It is the Swedish Work Environment Authority which grants authorisation to engage minors and it is we too who examine issues relating to working times.
Send the application no later than four weeks before the work is to begin.
For minors between the ages of 13 and 18 you may also have to seek authorisation if you wish to be exempt from the rules on working time.
