The Child Labor Act of 1991 defines a "child" as a person under the age of 14, and an "adolescent" as a person under the age of 18 (definitions of children and adolescents in this law take precedence over these definitions in other labor laws). As mentioned above, the Constitution of Pakistan also establishes a minimum age of 14 years. However, amendment 18 raised the minimum age to 16 years without changing the labor law, so the contradiction persists. Article 25 (A) of the Constitution establishes that at present the state must provide compulsory education to all children between the ages of five and sixteen, which means that a child should not be allowed to work until he is 16 years old.
The law also provides for certain exceptions. It establishes that no child should participate in any profession, institution or process considered dangerous to children, except when this process is carried out by the family as a business or in any school (of education), established, supported and recognized by government.
The leather industry is the most dynamic sector of export revenues and takes the 2nd place in the economy of Pakistan.
