Child Labor rules in Jamaica
- In Jamaica, under the Child Care and Protection Act, it is an offence to employ a child under 13 years old. The law does make an exception for children 13 to 15 years old to be employed, but they should only do light work. Children 15 and over must not be employed in night work or in any industrial or hazardous work. It is also an offence for a child to be used for indecent or immoral purposes.
Child Labor laws in UK
Children can only start full-time work after the last Friday in June of the academic year when they turn 16. This is the minimum school leaving age.
After a child has reached the minimum school leaving age they can work up to a maximum of 40 hours a week.
School-aged children are not entitled to the National Minimum Wage. Young workers aged 16 to 17 are entitled to at least £3.68/hr.
Once someone reaches 18, adult employment rights and rules then apply.
