Employment News October 2011

You may recall our article in July's newsletter - this is just a quick reminder to those Jersey businesses employing children. The 1st of this month saw the implementation of the new Children (Regulation of Employment) (Jersey) Order 2011 which governs the way children aged 13 - 16 years of age are employed.

The Order aims to protect Jersey's children by limiting the hours in which a child can work, regulating the actual times in a day which a child can work, restricts the type of work that can be undertaken and reinforces the need for regular rest breaks.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought about your specific circumstances.
