Petition Review and reform working restrictions on under 16s
We need the Government to review legislation restricting the work under 16s are able to do as this both unreasonably restricts what businesses young people can work for, and the hours they can work. The legislation needs bringing up to date and the hours amended.
The National Network for Children in Employment (NNCEE), on behalf of young people, are calling on the Government to remove the Sunday restrictions of only allowing 2 hours of employment and allow it to be the same as a Saturday, and extend the time young workers can work from 7pm to 8pm. The Government should also review the restrictions on the jobs that young people currently cannot do, such as working in a cinema, to bring the legislation up to date and inline with the 21st century.
