Child Employment

Under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) responsibility for the regulation of child employment in Australia lies with the states and territories. Unfortunately, this has led to significant variance in child employment laws and processes across the various jurisdictions.

The LPA Guide to Child Employment Regulations provides a summary of child employment regulations in each State and Territory. This document is currently under review and will be made available shortly. In the meantime, if you have any queries in regard to child employment please contact LPA at or (03) 8614 2000.
