2016 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Minimal Advancement

In 2016, Tuvalu made a minimal advancement in efforts to prevent the worst forms of child labor. The Government continued consultations on the draft Labor and Employment Relations Bill, with the aim of improving the law’s compliance with international standards on child labor. Although research is limited and the problem does not appear to be widespread, children in Tuvalu engage in child labor in fishing. The Government lacks data on the enforcement of child labor laws, and the legal framework has gaps that leave children vulnerable to engagement in hazardous work and other worst forms of child labor.
