DOL REPORT FINDS CHILD LABOR STILL REMAINS

by Patricia Schaeffer, Vice President-Regulatory Affairs

The U.S. Department of Labor released its seventh annual report (“U.S. Department of Labor’s 2007 on the Worst Forms of Child Labor”) describing the efforts of 141 countries and territories to meet their international commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. DOL found the “enforcement of child labor laws continued to be weak in many of the countries included in the report with enforcement efforts chronically hindered by insufficient resources. In many countries, child labor inspectors do not receive adequate training and are vulnerable to corruption due to low salaries.”
