Minister accepts recommendation to increase minimum wage

02 October 2023

The Employment Forum have published their report on the level of minimum wage and offsets in Jersey. This has been presented to the Minister for Social Security, Deputy Elaine Millar.

The Minister has decided to accept the Forum's recommendation to increase the minimum wage rate to £11.64 per hour from 1 January 2024. This is a 10.9% increase in the current rate of £10.50 per hour. The Minister has also accepted the Forum's recommendation to increase the offset rates for meals and accommodation by the same percentage. These increases will be implemented by a Ministerial Order.

The Minister for Social Security, Deputy Elaine Millar said: "I am very grateful to the Employment Forum for their work in preparing this report. The Government remains committed to seeing real increases to the minimum wage level. The Forum's recommendation to increase the minimum wage by the June 2023 RPI figure of 10.9% and by more than the increase in average earnings is welcome. I believe this change will make a positive difference to those on the lowest wages."
