As an employer you should provide employees with information on both the method of payment (be it by bank transfer or some other method), and the date(s) of payment (be it weekly, monthly, etc).
The rate of pay must be agreed formally and confirmed in writing within two months of the start of a new job or the start of a new contract at the same place of work. Information about when and how regularly the employee is to be paid must also be included.
Employees on short-term contracts, workers employed by subcontractors, casual labourers, agency employees and homeworkers are all eligible for the National Minimum Wage (NMW).
The employees who are not entitled to the NMW are:
National Minimum Hourly Wage
|Age of the Employee||Minimum hourly wage|
|Apprentices in their 1st year of their apprenticeship or under 19||£2.68|
|21 or over||£6.31
