of Labour is responsible for monitoring and policing the sectoral determination. (78) DL needs to make special efforts in respect of child labour regarding enforcement of the retail sectoral determination . Strategies should include a widespread publicity campaign. Lead institution: DL . New Policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost : minimal-moderate cost for publicity campaign. Recurrent cost : minimal recurrent cost. Time line: to be done within one year of adoption of policy. 5.10.2 Work in shebeens and liquor outlets This is an area where particularly strong measures should be taken to stop such children under 18 years old from working. It exposes them to liquor and to potential abuse by patrons. Although the law prohibits children from selling or buying liquor, this provision is not enforced effectly. (79) Provincial departments responsible for enforcing provincial liquor policies should introduce measures ensuring that owners and operators of liquor outlets adhere to the prohibition on children under 18 years working in any capacity in liquor outlets . Action could include regular inspections; a requirement that applicants for liquor licences sign an undertaking that they will not allow children to work in their establishments; and revoking licences where children are found to be working. Lead institution : PPO . Secondary institution: SAPS. New policy? Yes. Once off cost: minimal. Recurrent cost: minimal. Time line: within 2 years of adoption of policy. ILO funding: to cover once off assessment and design costs. Proposals discussed elsewhere, that should also assist children working retail and related sectors: a) The national awareness campaign on child labour should encourage the eradication of practices where children are involved in making or selling liquor , or work in establishments where they are exposed to liquor or clients buying liquor. See (22). 5.10.3 ‘Self employment’ as parking attendants or car washers: This area will not be easy to address, as many of the children who are self-employed in this work are doing the tasks completely independently. (80) Often parking attendants or car washers are employed, or given licences to work by private enterprises such as shops or owners of parking spaces, or by municipalities. These bodies should be alerted on the need to avoid child labour. No licences should be awarded to children under the age of 15 years . Lead institution: Business ; Secondary institution: LG . New policy ? Yes. Once off or recurrent cost : nil additional cost. See also proposals at 7.3. 5.10.4 Work in the taxi industry Children work in the taxi industry as taxi washers, assistants and in related service occupations. As taxi assistants they often travel with taxis, handling payment. They sometimes also shout the taxi's destination when passing potential clients. Strong action should be taken to stop children working as taxi assistants as this often leads to their missing school. They are continuously exposed to the risk of accidents, sporadic high levels of violence

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
