AbstractThis study further develops our understanding of the employmentexperiences of children (ages 9-11) and adolescents(ages 12-14) in the Canadianprovince of Alberta, with particular attention to illegal employment and theeffectiveness of complaint-based regulation. Surveydata demonstrates there is asignificant degree of illegal employment among children and adolescents.Interview data suggests that complaint-driven regulation of child labour isineffective because parents, children and adolescents cannot identify violationsand do not take action to trigger state enforcement.
