Child Employment

If your child has a weekend job, holiday job, or works before or after school they must have a work permit and this is law. Your child's employer is legally responsible for applying for the permit and failure to do so can lead to prosecution and heavy fines. 

The law is there to protect the children - work permits can only be issued for work that is allowed by law and only for the hours children are permitted to work. Children working without a permit are employed illegally and may not be covered by their employer’s insurance. This has serious implications for those children who are injured at work and need compensation, or have property damaged or stolen (e.g. bicycle on a paper round).

The hours children can work vary according to their age and whether it is term or holiday time. The legislation surrounding the employment of children is complicated. Click here for a link to the latest guidance.
