Ministry addresses child labour


Recommended Posts

The Labour Ministry has reminded business owners not to employ minors, while also noting that it has not come across any cases of child labour so far this year. Labour Minister Ith Samheng on Friday said employers must respect and follow labour laws and directives issued by the ministry regarding the employment of minors.


“Although we haven’t come across factories, enterprises, bricklayers or other businesses who employ children, we want them to remember labour laws,” Mr Samheng said. General businesses must not employ children under 15, while nightclubs must not employ those under 18, he noted.


“The ministry will take legal action on business owners who are caught making this mistake,” Mr Samheng said. Last year, rights group Licadho warned that children were still being exploited in handicraft and brick factories across the country despite efforts to put an end to child labour.
