Authorization Forms are written approvals for something to be done or granted. From that you can understand that Work Authorization Forms are documents that grant someone approval to start or continue some work under a contract.

This list of free PDF forms refers to work authorization in this general sense. These forms are not to be confused with the USCIS work authorization, which is a card conferring eligibility to work in the United States.

Instead, these forms cover general situations dealing with new job applicants, contractors, current employees required to do extra work, as well as students needing authorization to start employment while still being students.

Why Do I Need Work Authorization Forms?

Authorization forms can also be called work permits, and are legal necessities to protect both parties from legal action.

As a prospective employee, you need to be cleared to work before a business can consider signing you into a contract. Many businesses will likely have background checks in place and might require you to submit a work permit. This will hold especially true for:

  • hiring independent contractors. Since contractors will not be acting as employees but as independent entities, different contract terms apply. You will want to work only with contractors permitted to operate. These forms will also include hazard and risk assessment to be reviewed by the contract administrator. (See Contractor Work Authorization Form.)
  • hiring students or minors. You will need authorization from the school or guardians and make sure everything is in accordance with the local child labor laws, because this can get very messy very fast. (See Student Employee Work Authorization Form and Federal Work Study Authorization Form.)
  • granting current employees to do field work or extra work. In this case, an authorization is just a matter of routine approval to grant them access to certain restricted services and facilities. (See Additional Work Authorization and Field Work Authorization Form.)

You can easily see how the process of approval applies to other areas of our lives: check out Travel Authorization Forms and Medical Authorization Forms.
