The National Minimum Wage increases from £6.31 to £6.50 an hour from today for those over 21.
18 to 20 year olds see an increase to £5.13 with under 18’s being entitled to £3.79 an hour and those on apprenticeships seeing a slight rise to £2.73 an hour.
All workers are entitled to the minimum wage providing they are of school leaving age (last Friday in June of the school year they turn 16). Any provision to contract out of the national minimum wage is likely to be unenforceable. If you are a salaried employee you must earn at least the national minimum wage as a n average of the hours you work.Talk to our legal team
