Consultation on salaried workers and salary-sacrifice schemes

Close date: 1 March 2019

The Government consults on proposed changes to the national minimum wage rules regarding salaried workers and on the operation of salary-sacrifice schemes. Certain conditions must be met for work to qualify as salaried hours work under the National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/621). The Government explores how effective these rules are in preventing worker exploitation. It seeks views on proposed amendments to the Regulations to include additional payment cycles and fixing the definition of the calculation year for employers. The consultation also explores the practical operation of salary-sacrifice schemes and their effect on workers on the minimum wage.
