UNDRIP Article 17: Equality Under International and Domestic Labor Laws

Article 17 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples states:
1. Indigenous individuals and peoples have the right to enjoy fully all rights established under applicable international and domestic labor laws.

2. States shall in consultation and cooperation with indigenous peoples take specific measures to protect indigenous children from economic exploitation and from performing any work that is likely to be hazardous or to interfere with the child’s education, or to be harmful to the child’s health or physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development, taking into account their special vulnerability and the importance of education for their empowerment.

3. Indigenous individuals have the right not to be subjected to any discriminatory conditions of labor and, inter alia, employment or salary.
