Minimum Wages

 

There are three minimum wage rates:

  • the adult minimum wage applies to all employees aged 16 and over who are not new entrants or trainees
     
  • the new entrants minimum wage applies to employees aged 16 and 17 except for those who have completed 200 hours or three months of employment, whichever is shorter; or who are supervising or training other workers; or who are trainees
     
  • the training minimum wage applies to employees aged 16 and over who are doing recognised industry training involving at least 60 credits a year.

There is no statutory minimum wage for employees who are under 16 years old.
