About the Employment Forum
The Employment Forum role will be to act as a non-political consultative body.
The forum will need to consult on the rate of minimum wage and other employment related issues as directed by the Social Security Minister. After views have been received in consultation the forum will need to report these to the minister along with recommendations on each issue.
The forum's role and responsibilities are formalised in the
Employment (Jersey) Law 2003.
