What is the training minimum wage

The training minimum wage applies to people aged 20 years or over who are required by their employment agreement to undertake at least 60 credits a year in an industry training programme in order to become qualified for the occupation to which their employment agreement relates.

An employee being paid less than the relevant minimum wage can contact a Labour Inspector, who may intervene in the workplace to recover any money owed and ensure further problems do not occur. Employees can also get help from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s Mediation Services.
