The Children’s (Regulation of Employment) Order governs how and where young people can be employed, whether they are being paid or not. It applies to people under 16 years old.
The law was brought in to help make sure that working children have the correct balance between their work and school life. It’s about protecting you as a young person and is not intended to make working life difficult for you or your employer.

Knowing what you are entitled to, how you should be treated and what the company has to provide is really important as it keeps both you and your employer safe.
If you are unsure about contract types, your pay or anything in-between feel free to drop into The Link and speak to one of our youth advisors. If we can’t help you we will find someone that can.
