Are there any restrictions on hours of work for children?
Effectively, children may only be employed after reaching the age of 14 and then only on light work. There are general restrictions limiting work to between 7am and 7pm, but not during school hours. Work carried out outside school hours on school days and on Sundays is limited to two hours.
Local Authorities have powers to vary these hours and conditions, so approach your local authority (e.g. City or Borough Council) for details of the rules in your area.
