The nature of such employment may reflect the demands of the local economy. Regional differences in the types and dominant forms of employment have been found (McKechnie et al. 1993). Research evidence also indicates that factors such as gender and age play a role in the form of employment experienced (Lindsay 1997; O’Donnell and White 1998; McKechnie et al. 1998). Lindsay argues that age and gender interact in influencing when children work and the form of employment they enter. Research that has been driven by an interest in the policy and legislation of child employment has found that the majority of employment is illegal and that monitoring processes are ineffective (Hobbs and McKechnie 1997).

It is also anticipated that the EMA will limit young people’s participation in paid part-time work. The underlying assumption here is that there is a negative association between part-time work and educational achievement, although there has been little evidence to support or contradict this in Britain to date. McKechnie and Hobbs suggest (Chapter 2 in this volume) that the relationship between education and work is far more complex and less clear cut. Yet the importance of young people’s work to the economy cannot be disputed.

What is apparent is that, like adults, child employees evaluate the workplace, recognising the good and bad aspects of their jobs (McKechnie et al. 1996; Leonard 1999b). Children also have strong views on the role of legislation and their right to work (McKechnie et al. 1995; Leonard 1999b). It is worth noting that, although children have specific and relevant views on this issue, the 1998 government review on child employment legislation failed to take any soundings from the very group targeted by the legislation.
