NJ.gov Issues Digital Working Papers plus COVID Alerts Retired

Teens and Guardians: Working Papers are Going Digital

Starting on June 1st, 2023, Working Papers applications will be online at MyWorkingPapers.NJ.gov. Employers hiring teenagers must register online to receive a unique 8-digit code and share that code with every minor they intend to hire. The potential hire can then visit the website to create an account and start their working papers application, entering the employer’s unique code. Caregivers must review the details of the job and provide proof of the minor’s age. The NJ Department of Labor will notify the business once the application is approved.

NJ COVID Alert Has Been Retired

After 32 months and at least 674,000 exposure notifications, the NJ COVID Alert NJ app has been retired. The app will no longer receive updates or generate notifications and can be removed safely from devices on which it is installed.
