Child Labour Tool | Signs of Child Labour
A number of signals can indicate that children are involved in child labour or the worst forms of child labour (WFCL) such as forms of slavery, commercial sexual exploitation, or trafficking. A child can display one or multiple signs. Sometimes humanitarian actors may suspect that something is not right and use their professional skills to talk to a child and find out more information. None of the following signs in isolation or in combination can give complete certainty of involvement in child labour/WFCL; it is important to train staff members, such as case workers, to assess the situation of the individual child.
