    Children and young persons are restricted in the type of work they can do. The type of work children and young persons can do is governed by Part VIII of the Employment Act and the Employment of Children and Young Persons Regulations. Children aged 13 to less than 15 years can work in a non industrial setting for light duties only. Young persons aged 15 to less than 16 years can work in a non-industrial setting and also work in an industrial setting but with the employers must notify the Ministry of Manpower and submit a medical report.
