Research background: Over the past years, employment and conditions of work have changed considerably; labour market is more flexible what enables enterprises to react faster to changing market requirements. Labour rules make it easier to hire and fire workers. A special category of employees includes juveniles who are covered by increased legal protection; a juvenile employee is an employee under 18 years of age. Work is an important part of every person. Many adolescents want to raise funds to provide for the basic necessities of life, but also to meet the needs of self-realization, socialization and creativity. Young people are regulated by many laws that contain prohibitions and obligations; employers are obliged to create favourable conditions for the all-round development of the physical and mental abilities of juvenile workers also by special adjustment of their working conditions.
Purpose of the article: The article is focused on the analysis of current possibilities and specific conditions of employment of juveniles, identification of problems in the field of employment protection of juveniles in their employment as well as in the performance of work in dual education and proposal of systemic measures for practice.
Methods: The method of analysis, synthesis, deduction, interview and questionnaires were used in the research.
Findings & Value added: The ever-increasing demands on businesses in a globalized world require a more skilled workforce that is able to contribute to and adapt to technological change with new models of work organization. In connection with this, it is necessary to pay attention to the employment of juveniles, their specific conditions at work and in training for future occupations and elimination of risks.
Key words: juvenile employee / labour protection / legislative rules, risk
