Law on children’s and women’s labor in industrial and mining establishments from 1906 was an important step on the way of modernizing labor relations and of protecting safety and security of women and young employees in the workplace. This paper presents the elaboration, adoption and implementation of the 1906 law in the socio-economic and political context of that time, presenting its pros and cons. The author makes also a series of observations concerning the evolution of labour relations, especially about the working conditions of minors and women in the Romanian industry, before and after the adoption of the law. To better illustrate the impact of this law’s stipulations, the author makes a comparison between the previous laws, the Law on children’s and women’s labour in industrial and mining establishments from 1906 and the provisions of the laws that have regulated subsequently working conditions for women and children, especially “Neniţescu Law” of 1912.
