The government reviews the minimum wage each year. On 1 April 2015 the adult minimum wage is to rise from $14.25/hour to $14.75/hour. The starting out and training minimum wages will increase from $11.40 to $11.80/hour.
We recommend you review all wage and salary structures to ensure your employees are paid at least the minimum wage at all times for hours worked. Please also remember that an employer’s KiwiSaver obligations are in addition to minimum wage entitlements.
