What age do you have to be to get a job In Queensland, Australia?




  1. I think any responsible age for paper and junk mail delivery ;-)

    Lot of work for very little return -     ;-)

    Just a warning

  2. The lowest age is around 13-14 with parental permission

  3. Everyone believes it's 14yrs & 9 months - but off the Qld government website it does state ::

    The general minimum age is 13 years for children starting work, although children from 11 years of age may perform delivery work including for items such as newspapers and advertising leaflets.


    Has all the info needed including:

    - Minimum age you can start work in industries other than the entertainment industry

    - Permission for school-aged and children to start work

    - What you need to know before you start your new job

    - Definition of employment type - full-time, part-time or casual employees is also a great site based for young people. 12 - 25 yrs old.  Info on finding your first job etc..  Click on the icon 'find' and the menu will pop down.

  4. 14years9months.

  5. 14 yrs 9 mths

  6. it depends where you wanna apply but most fast food places will hire at 13-14

  7. 15 yrs, unless you are doing work experience with supervision. Weird and you have to be 16 to get a car license!

  8. 1703. The relevant Acts do not specify minimum ages for employment, with the exception of the Workplace Health and Safety Act 1989. The Workplace Health and Safety Act 1989 provides that an employer shall not permit any male under the age of 18 years or any female to operate at a workplace where lead processing is used. The Health Act 1937 prohibits a person who has not attained the age of 18 years from obtaining a pest control operators licence or preparing pesticides for use by a pest controller. The Act also prohibits a person under the age of 17 years from mixing or loading agricultural chemicals intended for the use in aerial or ground application.

    1704. The Education (General Provisions) Act 1989 indirectly addresses the issue of the legal minimum age for part-time and full-time employment by providing that a parent shall not employ or cause to be employed his or her child during school hours unless special dispensation has been granted. Education is mandatory until 15 years and therefore labour restrictions do not apply after that age.

    1705. The Childrens Services Act 1965 prohibits any female child under the age of 17 years from engaging in street trading. However, boys over the age of 12 years may engage in street trading between the hours of 6.00 am and 10.00 pm, under certain conditions. Children are prohibited from engaging in street trading during school hours.

    1706. The Childrens Services Act also makes it an offence for adults to employ children in the following occupations:

    relating to the procurement of children for employment in the performing arts, (for money);

    children who are under school leaving age are prohibited from working in racing stables, or as a jockey. This work is permitted if betting was not permitted in relation to the employment and if the proceeds were to go to schools, churches, or charity;

    under this section of the Act, it is also an offence to employ children in any dangerous or indecent performances; and

    any such children engaged in the cinematographic industry, or who are working as a model or engaged in public entertainment, who are under school leaving age require a permit issued by the Director-General of the Department of Family Services and Aboriginal and Islander Affairs. (In practice this delegation rests with the Regional Manager of the area in which the child resides.)

    1710. Section 78 of the Education Act provides that a child of compulsory school age may not be employed during the hours at which he or she is required to attend school or during any part of a day of night in any labour or occupation that is such as to render the child unfit to attend school or to obtain the proper benefit from the instruction provided for him or her.
