Fifteen year olds are eligible to work in the Sate of Connecticut under very strict guidelines. The guidelines are very clear. There is no requirement for a work permit as there is in some states. You are eligible to work in agriculture under the same restrictions as all other approved fields.

Besides agriculture fifteen year olds can work in hospitals and convalescent homes (no food service or laundry); hotels/motels (no food service or laundry); banks; insurance companies; professional offices (lawyers, CPA's, etc.); libraries; parks and recreation, etc.; licensed summer camps; acting and street trades such as babysitting, newspapers, and household chores for home owners.

Fifteen year olds may not work during school hours; before 7am or after 7pm. From July 1st-labour day may work until 9am; no more than 3 hours on school days, 8 hours on non-school days; no more than 18 hours in school weeks and 40 hours in non-school weeks.
