Responsibilities while employing Child Artists

Last updated on Jun 22, 2022

The following are the responsibilities of the employer when it comes to employing child artists:


You should make sure that the child is given proper education while doing his or her work as an artist. The Act specifically states that all measures must be taken so that the child does not discontinue going to school.


You should make sure that 20% of the income that has been earned by the child as an artist, should be deposited in a fixed account in a nationalized bank and once the child becomes 18 years of age, he or she can reclaim the money.

The most important criteria is that if a child is uncomfortable and does not want to participate in an activity or sport, the child should not be forced into the action against his or her will and consent.
