When you start work your employer should tell you:
- the day or date when you will be paid. For example each Friday or the last working day of the month
- how you will be paid. For example in cash, by cheque or directly to your bank
If you are an employee, you must be given a document that tells you how much you will be paid and at what intervals within two months of starting work. This is normally contained in your contract of employment.
Different jobs pays different rates, but unless you are an Apprentice aged 19 or under, you are entitled to the National Minimum Wage. Visit the HMRC website for up to date information.
