No 2397 The National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Regulations 2012

The Regulations amend the 1999 regulations primarily in relation to the national minimum wage rates. 


The Regulations come into force, as far as Northern Ireland is concerned, on 1/10/12. The key changes are as follows: increases - the principal rate of the national minimum wage from £6.08 to £6.19 per hour, increases the rate paid to apprentices within the first 12 months of their employment or engagement under Government arrangements (as specified)  or who have not attained the age of 19 from £2.60 to £2.65 per hour, increases the accommodation amount which is applicable where an employer provides a worker with living accommodation from £4.73 to £4.82 for each day that accommodation is provided.
