Existing law requires the written consent of, and issuance of an entertainment work permit from, the Labor Commissioner for the employment of a minor in entertainment productions, as an advertising or photographic model, or as a participant or player in a sport.

This bill would require that a fee set by the Labor Commissioner, not to exceed $50, be submitted at the time the minor applies for an entertainment work permit to work in the above functions. The fee will be deposited into a newly-created Entertainment Work Permit Fund, for use by the Labor Commissioner for the costs of issuing the permit, enforcing laws regulating a minor’s employment, and administering the entertainment work permit program.

Adds Section 1308.10 to the Labor Code.

Enrolled and to the Governor on 08/25/10.
