Q462: Are there any restrictions on the types of jobs that children can do?
There are restrictions on street trading and busking for young children, they are not permitted to do it unless the local authority has a by-law which permits them to be employed in street trading whilst employed for their parents or guardians. It is best to contact your local authority if you wish to employ your child in street trading or busking .
The child must not be employed in a job that is harmful to the safety, health and development of the child and it must not interfere with school attendance or work experience. Also the child must not be employed to lift, carry or move anything so heavy as to be likely to cause injury.
