Naturally, the aspects of Employment Law concerning wages, and the relevant rights for both employer and employee are of very high importance. The wage is fundamental to the job and as such it is certainly good practice to read up as much as possible on the appropriate legislation.
Your employer should provide you 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 by the employer within two months of the start of new job or the start of a new contract at the same place of work. Information about when and how regularly you receive your pay must also be included.
If you are an employee in the UK and you are older than 16, you are entitled to the national minimum wage. This includes employees on short-term contracts, workers employed by subcontractors, casual labourers, agency employees and homeworkers.
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
