Résumé/Citation: This Act repeals the Employment of Children Act, 1938 (Legislative Series 1938-Ind.5). In particular it prohibits employment of children under 15 from engaging in work involving specified processes that are dangerous or hazardous to the health of workers. Procedures are also established for implementation and enforcement of the Act, such as the requirement that all employers maintain a register of particulars regarding the employment of any children under the age of fifteen. Pakistan has ratified C59 which fixes a minimum age for industrial employment, but is conditionally exempted under Art.7 from the Art.2 blanket prohibition of employment of children under 15 "in any public or private industrial undertaking".
