Ministry compiles child labour data

Update: 3:07PM THE Ministry of Employment has compiled a child labour database since 2012.

In opening the child labour workshop this morning in Labasa, Minister for Employment Jone Usamate said the data had empowered his team to resolve child labour cases in the country.

“We have noted that for 2016, we have received only five cases of child labour so far, which we have resolved through the labour inspection process,” he said.
