LHC Orders End to Forced Child Labour

The Lahore High Court (LHC) has issued a landmark ruling calling for the eradication of forced child labour in all settings, including households. The case originated from the rescue of a maid and has triggered a series of actions that could bring about significant changes in child labour practices across the province.

The court’s decision declares that individuals who hire children as domestic workers are committing a punishable offense, with cases to be registered against them. The Child Protection & Welfare Bureau (CP&WB) has been directed to take appropriate measures against violators, while the police will collaborate with relevant departments to prevent child labour.
