Child Employment

School age children can benefit greatly from part-time employment, if the work is suitable and properly regulated.

Schoolwork, homework and attendance at school are paramount.

Any employment that is undertaken by a school aged child must be licensed with Middlesbrough Council and an employment card must be obtained by the employer.

No child under 13 years old may be employed
