Central Committee of the National Revolution: it is suggested that minors should not engage in over age business activities (source: video synthesis)
In recent years, there have been many hot events on the Internet, such as video kicked by mother when shooting a three-year-old child model, childrens Secret Show, child star training scam, child star online live broadcast and fund-raising, which reflect that minors are forced to work beyond their physical capacity or incompatible with their age and body and mind, resulting in their personal rights, education rights and property rights Violations.
In order to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of minors, during this years two sessions of the National Peoples Congress, the Central Committee of the peoples Republic of China submitted the proposal on strengthening the protection of minors rights and interests in commercial activities. It is suggested to establish industry licensing norms, and form a comprehensive mechanism for the protection of minors rights and interests in commercial activities through the guidance, supervision and punishment of the custody of legal agents.
The Central Committee of the democratic revolution put forward in the proposal that there is a legislative gap in the current domestic laws and regulations on regulating minors to engage in commercial activities. There are some problems in the law on the protection of minors, the law on advertising, the regulations on the management of minors programs and the regulations on the special protection of minors workers, such as the insufficient coverage of the age group to be protected and the insufficient enumeration of the types of commercial activities to be engaged in; the lack of industrial norms for minors commercial performances, etc. At the same time, the general principles of civil law also lack relevant provisions for this kind of situation.
In the proposal, the Central Committee of the democratic revolution proposed to add relevant provisions to the amendment of the law on the protection of minors rights and interests in commercial performances, and clearly guide other relevant legislation with the principle of maximizing the interests of children. At the same time, we should speed up the study and introduction of special legislation, first try to formulate regional administrative regulations, etc., and then rise to national level legislation after the success of the pilot.
At the same time, we should establish the industry standard for minors to engage in business activities. According to the content and characteristics of minors participation in business activities, the entry standard is constructed from the aspects of physical condition, compulsory education and academic performance; the specific provisions are made for businesses from the aspects of employment contract, working time, working intensity, working environment, working content, supervision and punishment for violation of regulations. To ensure that minors participation in business activities is in line with childrens age characteristics and physical and mental development laws.
In view of the abuse of guardianship caused by parents, the Central Committee of the democratic revolution proposed to promote the diversification of guidance, supervision and evaluation mechanisms for legal representatives. Legal representatives shall be guided to respect the wishes of minors, and shall not be forced to work, treated with violence, deprived of their right to education or impaired.
At the same time, through the relevant laws and regulations to develop a monitoring and evaluation mechanism, to measure whether guardianship has been abused and the extent of abuse. In addition, before revoking the provisions of guardianship, we should increase the provisions restricting the exercise of guardianship, establish a diversified punishment mechanism from light to heavy, and better protect the legitimate rights and interests of minors.
