The Apprentices Act 1894 [22/1894 (57 Vic. No.22)], also known as 'An Act to consolidate and amend the law relating to Apprentices' dealt with apprenticeships in the modern sense, as labour contracts between masters and those learning a trade. It set out rules for wages, penalties, and how an apprentice could enter and leave employment. It was repealed by the Apprentices Act 1901.
