The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) is implementing a new electronic application for registration, certification, and approval of minors, casting and production companies.
The change in the application process comes at the requests of several production companies and representatives of minors. It will provide all parties who employ minors in the entertainment industry with simpler and more expedient interactions with GDOL, including ability to submit and track seven days a week.
The application will go into production Friday, December 1, 2017. Effective March 1, 2018 all requests for approval of employing minors in a production must use the application. Directions concerning the use of the application will be made available on at https://dol.georgia.gov/ on November 29, 2017.
Predating this, the GDOL has completed a review to update its Rules for Minors in Entertainment and is repealing and replacing the existing rules. The proposed rules may be reviewed at https://dol.georgia.gov/blog/notice-amendments-inspection-child-labor (this landing page will list the proposed repealed rules and new rules).
All written comments about the proposed rules must be received by October 30, 2017. Written comments must be sent to:
Georgia Department of Labor
Attn: Legal Services
148 Andrew Young International Blvd., NE, Suite 600
Atlanta, GA 30303
Electronic comments must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The public comment meeting will be held on October 30, 2017 at 10:00 am at the Georgia Department of Labor, Central Office. Please see the notice below for the address.
