One such issue is the protection of children against child labour.

However, there is a sector that is seldom remembered and that is child labour in the informal sector. This study discusses child domestic work as a form of child labour. Its nature causes and effect on children. It examines relevant international conventions and national legislation of Nigeria to determine if the available laws protect children from child domestic work.It discusses the challenges to the implementation of the available laws and proffers possible solutions to combating child domestic employment in Nigeria.
