Please note the recent amendment to the Labor Law signed by Governor Cuomo on October 21, 2013:
"This amendment shifts the issuance of child model permits to the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL), thus, public schools, nonpublic schools and BOCES will no longer issue child modeling permits. Effective immediately, the NYSDOL's Division of Labor Standards has assumed all responsibility for the issuance of Child Model Permits in the State of New York."
Parents inquiring about how to obtain a Child Model Permit are directed to to contact the New York State Division of Labor Standards at:
NYS Division of Labor Labor Standards Permit and Certificate Unit State Campus Building, Bldg 12, Room 266A Albany, NY 12240 518-457-1942 or fax 518-457-2731
