This is a new service – your feedback will help us to improve it.

Our new series of bite-sized webinars has been created to help you avoid errors.
  • In Interns, Work Placements and the NMW, clarity is provided around what has, in the past, been a confusing area for some employers. Just by calling a worker ‘unpaid’ or ‘a volunteer’, even if the individual agrees to this, doesn’t prevent them from qualifying for the minimum wage if they are entitled.
  • Apprentices and the NMW outlines the correct approach to be taken when applying the apprenticeship rate of pay. It’s not enough to just call somebody an apprentice. Apprenticeships must equip a worker with the skills and ability to enable them to do a trade. Did you know that workers who are 19 or over and have completed the first year of their apprenticeship are entitled to the higher minimum wage rate for their age?
  • Payments, Deductions and the NMW explains the deductions an employer makes from a worker’s pay, or payments made by a worker to their employer, that reduce pay for minimum wage purposes. It also covers statutory deductions.
