Did you know that there are specific rules about how and when a 16-year-old can work?
Because 16-year-olds are still in school, their working hours are restricted to fit around their studies.
During term time, you can work a maximum of 12 hours a week. On Saturdays, you can work a maximum of 8 hours. That’s a full day!
However, on both school days and Sundays, you are limited to just 2 hours.
You also cannot work before 7 am and after 7 pm.
During school holiday, you can work a maximum of 35 hours a week.
This includes a maximum of 8 hours Monday to Saturday.
On Sunday you’re only allowed to work a maximum of 2 hours.
