Anyone who is an employee or worker is entitled to be paid in line with National Minimum Wage (NMW) legislation. They must be paid at least the NMW for every hour worked. This includes both the hours stated in their contract of employment and any extra hours worked. Overtime must be paid, or TOIL given for extra hours. Failure to do so may result in an underpayment of the NMW.
Those who are self-employed set their own hourly rate.
