So I get paid on the 5th working day of each month, which is usually the 7th. In November I got paid on the 7th, and turned 21 on the 9th.
This month I've been paid £5.95 per hour. I was thinking that it should be £6.31(minimum wage)? But my employer says because I turned 21 part way through the month he won't pay me the 21 NMW till next month. Is this right?
I don't know the answer for sure but I agree with the PP. If you're 21 you should be entitled to minimum wage, very few people will have birthdays nicely placed on pay cut off days so the fact that yours was partway through a month should make no difference. It's not difficult to work it out and I'd push for the money, if you find that you are owed it he's breaking the law. Speaking to CAB is a good idea.
