CRC Article = 32
Article 32 of the CRC accords to the child the right to be protected from any work that is likely to interfere with the child's education, or to be harmful to the child's health or physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development. The term "work" is broader than employment, the latter implying some form of contractual or formal status.
