National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage - paying workers for salaried-hours work

Introduction

The hours you must pay a worker the National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage for depend on the type of work they do. This does not depend on the worker's occupation - it depends on the basis you pay them on.

For minimum wage purposes there are four different types of work: time work, salaried-hours work, output work and unmeasured work.

This guide describes how for minimum wage purposes you should calculate the hours worked by workers doing salaried hours work.
