In 2016, Niue made no advancement in efforts to prevent the worst forms of child labor. While there is no evidence that child labor, including its worst forms, exists in Niue, the Government has not established adequate legal protection to prevent the worst forms of child labor. The law does not criminally prohibit the use, procuring, or offering of a child for prostitution, the production of pornography, or pornographic performances or the use of children for illicit activities, including for the production and trafficking of drugs. In addition, Niue has not established a minimum age for work and lacks a law that prohibits hazardous occupations and activities for children.
