Anyone for work experience? Don’t fall foul of the National Minimum Wage!


Anyone for work experience?  Do you use unpaid trainees?  Or interns as they are termed these days, if so, you need to be aware that at the end of last year there was a campaign to clamp down on this practice.  It is expected that there will be an even bigger campaign in whatever you do, don’t fall foul of the National Minimum Wage!

The current National Minimum wage rates are:-

  • 21 Plus £6.31
  • 18 to 20 £5.03
  • Under 18 £3.72
  • Apprentice £2.68

If you are paying below the National Minimum Wage you need to correct the rate of pay now and back date it to avoid the risk of a penalty.  You could risk a £5000 fine.
