Bishopsgate Law, a firm of solicitors in London and Hertfordshire, helps employees with employment law problems bring employment tribunal claims and represents them at tribunals.
All workers aged over the compulsory school leaving age (16 years old) must be paid the National Minimum Wage.
There are different rates for adult workers (aged 21 and over), workers aged 18-20, young workers (16-17), and apprentices under 19, or over 19 and in the first year of their apprenticeship.
Complex rules govern how the NMW is calculated, particularly for piece workers who are paid according to what they produce rather than by the hour.
From 1st April 2016, the national living wage has been introduced for workers aged 25 and older. The minimum wage will still apply for workers aged 24 and under.
The current rates are available here: National Minimum Wage.
