Limited Use Food Employee
Certificate


The Limited Use Food Employee (Food Service Worker) Certificate process provides the opportunity for those with a disability to obtain a Limited Use Certificate in order to perform specific determined tasks of low public health risk while working under the direct supervision of the establishment’s Certified Food Protection Manager. The Certified Food Protection Manager must be present when a worker with a Limited Use Food Employee Certificate is working in the permitted establishment.

How do I obtain a Limited Use Food Employee Certificate?

The permitted food establishment’s Certified Food Protection Manager contacts their Maricopa County Environmental Services Department Environmental Health Specialist (Inspector) to initiate the Limited Use Food Employee Certificate process.

How can I use the Limited Use Food Service Worker Certificate?

The Limited Use Food Employee Certificate was created to accommodate persons with a disability. It allows individuals to work in food establishments with specific low public health risk duties, including but not limited to dishwashing, bussing tables, and filling condiments. The Limited Use Food Employee Certificate is valid for a period of three years from issuance. The fee for the certificate is $5.00. An original Limited Use Food Employee Certificate must be kept at the workplace. After the certificate expires, the process must be repeated to obtain a new Limited Use Food Employee Certificate.

Do I need to show Lawful presence to obtain the Limited Use Food Employee Certificate?
