Can my child quit school if he is working with my family in a family enterprise?
No, the law specifically states the importance of a child’s education and so you should not force your child to quit school. Instead, you should encourage him or her to learn and work at the same time. You should keep in mind:
- Your child can only work in a family enterprise to help his or her own family and only work for the family.
- Your child should not be given work during school hours and between 7 pm and 8 am.
- Your child should not be engaged in tasks which may severely affect his education or homework or extra-curricular activity assigned to him or her.
- Your child should not be engaged in continuous tasks without rest which would make him or her tired. It is important to provide care and support for the child by providing breaks to refresh his health and mind. That is why the law states that the child should not work continuously for more than 3 hours.
