Bring your minor’s required documentation to your reserved Talent Onboarding session at our New York office. We cannot onboard your child without these documents and you will be turned away if you do not bring them to your reserved session.

At Talent Onboarding you will complete paperwork, an orientation, and your minor will take a photo for our casting platform.

Required Documentation

The Department of Homeland Security has issued an updated form I-9 that went into effect on January 22, 2017. This version requires minors (individuals 17 or under) to meet the same requirements as adults regarding the documents they can present for form I-9. Per the Department of Homeland Security, a list C document alone is no longer valid. Adults and minors are both required to either present one original unexpired List A document, or, an original unexpired List B and List C document combination. If presenting a List B document to an E-Verify employer (Central Casting), the employer can only see List B documents that include a photo. Per Federal Law, Central Casting is not permitted to register anyone, minor or adult, who does not have the required documentation.

The non-photo ID options in List B do not apply to minors pursuing employment with E-Verify companies (Central Casting).

Talent Onboarding FAQs

Central Casting is a participant in the E-Verify program. We will provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with information from each new employee’s I-9 form to confirm employment authorization. Note: If the government cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, we are required to provide you with written instructions and an opportunity to contact the SSA and/or DHS before taking adverse action against you, including terminating your employment.

If you need to receive your permit by a certain date, the DOL says to allow 15 days for processing.

Email your child’s new permit to: regccny@centralcasting.com

We will update your minor’s profile within 2 business days.
