On the Special Protection for Juvenile Workers

Jinruo Wu

Abstract


Industrial Revolution was the beginning of the phenomenon of child labor. Capitalists employed children, based on the autonomy of private law and the principle of contract, and put them under an adult-working condition whose labor intensity is not consistent with their physiological and psychological development. The health of children’s physical and mental development had been greatly harmed and the process of national civilization and the construction of legal system had been undermined, which was hard to ensure the rights to survival, health and development of these juveniles. Therefore, plenty of countries have launched special protective measures for underage workers. By taking Constitution of the People’s Republic of China as the core and Labor Law of the People’s Republic of China, Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Protection of Minors, Compulsory Education Law of the People's Republic of China, Regulations of the Special Protection on Children and Provisions on the Prohibition of Using Child Labor as the main contents, Chinese government has also initially set up the legal system regarding the special protection on juvenile workers while some of the contents still need to be improved and reviewed for further enhancement.
