Sazeeda Johora Thakur

Abstract


In general, child labor is a term that is used to describe work or physical labor by children that harm them or exploit them in some way – physically, mentally, morally, or by blocking their access to education. By and large, the “child labor” problem is a matter of grave concern in the world and more specifically in third world countries like Bangladesh. The effects of the exploitation of child labor are that it will cause impediments that will slow down, in the long run, the economic growth and social development of a child to develop unlike any other child with conventional upbringing. Bangladesh Labour Act 2006, introduced laws by including conditions and prohibitions to provide safety and security for children and adolescents at work. This paper aims to analyze the nature and determinants in relation with the law of child labor from the perspective of Bangladesh and by taking into consideration Bangladesh Labour Act 2006 including children’s occupational preferences and their views on work and school. In addition, it will analyze the current position of child labor and discusses the impact of the particular Act for reducing the percentage of child labor.
