675. Child labour and protection of young persons at work.

The EU Charter prohibits the employment of children, and provides that the minimum age of admission to employment may not be lower than the minimum school-leaving age1. It further provides that young people admitted to work must have working conditions appropriate to their age and be protected against economic exploitation and any work likely to harm their safety, health or physical, mental, moral or social development or to interfere with their education2. There are no corresponding protections under the European Convention on Human Rights
