National minimum wage entitlement, rate and arrears checker
Welcome to the national minimum wage entitlement, rate and arrears checker - an interactive tool which will help you to decide if a worker is or was entitled to the national minimum wage, and if so at what rate, and/or whether arrears are due to a particular worker in respect of a specified pay reference period - Opens in a new window.
You could face a financial penalty if you fail to pay any of your workers at least the national minimum wage. We strongly recommend that you read the information and guidance provided as you work through the tool as this will help you to decide whether a worker has been underpaid.
