Most workers are entitled to receive a certain minimum amount of money per hour. This is called the minimum wage. As long as you fit the criteria, you have the right by law to receive the minimum wage, and if you believe that you are being treated unfairly by your employer or that you are not receiving the salary you are entitled to, then you might be able to get your rights respected with the help of our team of Employment Law Inverness solicitors, specialists in employment law. You may, for instance, be entitled to take your case to an employment tribunal.
Our employment lawyers will be able to advise you in order to establish whether or not you are entitled to receive the minimum wage. For instance, entitlement varies according to your age. You are not entitled to be paid the minimum wage if you are below 16 years old. The minimum wage can also vary according to the type of employment contract you have. For example, apprentices receive a much lower rate, and the minimum wage does not apply to members of the armed forces, au pairs, or the self-employed.
