Employing Children Claims Edinburgh
While you cannot employ children under 13, there is an exception for certain types of artistic/theatrical performance, where a part can only be undertaken by a child of that age. Working hours are strictly controlled and they must have a permit issued by the local authority.
Most local authority websites allow employers to apply for a Child Employment Licence online. Search for your local authority by postcode on the Directgov website. Strict rules govern the employment of school-age young people and must be adhered to, even if you only want to employ them to do a paper round. No one under 16 may be employed in manufacturing or any dangerous activity.
In England and Wales, a young person can leave school on the last Friday in June if they are 16 or will be 16 before the start of the next school year. A child under 16 is defined as one under the minimum school leaving age.
Working conditions limitations
Young people aged between 13 and the minimum school-leaving age may not do any work, paid or unpaid:
- Before 07.00 or after 19.00
- For more than two hours on a school day or Sunday
- Before the close of school hours (however, local authority bylaws may allow young people to work for one hour before school)
- For more than 12 hours a week during term time
- For more than five hours (13 to 14 year olds) or eight hours (15 to 16 year olds) on Saturdays and during school holidays on weekdays
- For more than 25 hours in total a week – 35 hours if aged 15 or over – during school holidays
- for more than four hours without taking a break of at least one hour
- in any occupations prohibited by local bylaws or other legislation, for example in any industrial setting, pubs, betting shops, or in any work that may be harmful to their health, well-being or education
In addition, young people must have a two-week break from any work during the school holiday in each calendar year. Your local authority might have its own rules affecting school-aged workers so it’s important to check on these by-laws too. You must also notify your local authority. They may require: evidence that the job will not be dangerous – your risk assessment and health and safety policy will be useful for this.
No Win No Fee
No Win No Fee arrangements (or Conditional Fee Arrangements; CFAs) ensure that if you do not win your accident claim, you do not have to pay your solicitor a fee. Insurance will cover you against the other side’s costs and expenses. If you win your no win no fee claim, you should receive your compensation free of any deductions, as your solicitor’s costs should be paid by the other side.
