Fiji's Child Labour Unit at the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment has charged an employer for employing a 15-year-old boy in his construction company.

Minister for Labour, Jone Usamate has confirmed that the child was carrying out work on a building when he fell and broke his arm.

He said such exploitation of children will not be tolerated and warned that employers practicing this will be taken to task.

“We are in the process of charging few other employers who have employed children in hazardous and harmful environments and have breached the provisions of the Employment Relations Promulgation 2007 (ERP)."

He also affirmed that government under the Peoples Charter for Change Peace and Progress is committed to eradicate Child Labour and ensure that children are given their fundamental right to education.

The case is set to be called for mention on the 15th of this month at the Employment Relation Tribunal in Suva.
