From CRC/C/83/Add. 3 of 25 February 2002

10.68.2 The law on children’s employment, that is those under the minimum school leaving age, can now be outlined as follows.


10.68.3 Children between age 13 and the minimum school leaving age may work:

(a) For a maximum of 2 hours on schooldays;

(b) For a maximum of 2 hours on Sundays;

(c) For a maximum of 5 hours (if aged under 15) or 8 hours (if 15 or over) on Saturdays and weekdays during the school holidays, subject to an overall limit of 25 hours (under 15) or 35 hours (15 and over) a week in the school holidays.


10.68.4 Children may not:

(a) Do anything other than light work;

(b) Work before they are 13 years of age;

(c) Work for more than one hour before the start of school;

(d) Work during school hours;

(e) Work before 7.00 a.m. or after 7.00 p.m.;

(f) Work for more than four hours without a break of at least one hour;

(g) Work throughout the summer holidays; they must have a break of at least two weeks;

(h) Work without an employment card issued by the local authority;

(i) Work in any industrial undertaking, e.g. factory, building site, etc.;

(j) Work in many occupations prohibited by local by-laws or in other legislation, e.g. in pubs or betting shops, or in any work which is likely to be harmful to their health, well-being or education;

(k) Take part in certain theatrical or other performances or in professional sport or modelling without a licence issued by the local authority.
