The Teen-Level Employment App Project (Teen-LEAP) aims to influence the California labor force participation rate and employment population of teens by assisting young adults to start the work permit process on their 14th birthday. Minors employed in the state of California must have a Permit to Employ and Work (commonly referred to as a “work permit”). These official documents are typically issued by the school where the student is enrolled. The certified form indicates the duties and location where the work will be done as well as the number of hours a minor may work. Prior to the introduction of Teen-LEAP, in most cases, obtaining authorization is a manual and time-consuming two-step process, the minor along with the parent/guardian and employer fill out the B1-1 form and submit a signed paper to the school local to the minor's address. The school district reviews the B1-1 form and issues the B1-4 (Work Permit). Teen-LEAP streamlines the entire process to be accomplished on an iOS and Android mobile device using the DocuSign e-signature SDK integrated with Onfido identity verification.
