Child Labor and Forced Labor Reports

Norfolk Island

2020 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Moderate Advancement

Although research found no evidence that child labor exists on Norfolk Island, in 2020, the government made moderate advancement in efforts to prevent the worst forms of child labor. The Government of Australia adopted a new National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking and Slavery 2020–2025. The federal government also published a Modern Slavery Statement that discussed efforts to reduce child labor and human trafficking risks in federal government operations and procurement supply chains. However, Norfolk Island's laws do not set a minimum age for light work, which is not in compliance with international standards. In addition, the law does not specify activities in which light work may be permitted.
