Changes to minimum wage rates 1st April 2017

The Government announced on 24 January 2017 that the minimum wage will increase by 50 cents to $15.75 on 1 April 2017. The starting-out and training minimum wage rates will increase from $12.20 to $12.60 per hour - remaining at 80 per cent of the adult minimum wage. Holiday pay must be paid in addition to the minimum wage. An increase in the minimum wage will not affect an employee's other conditions of employment, unless they agree to the changes.
An employee who is paid less than the minimum wage can complain to a Labour Inspector.
