What is the Employment Forum?
The role of the Employment Forum is to act as a non-political consultative body. It has a duty to consult on the rate of the minimum wage and other employment-related issues as directed by the Social Security Minister.
The forum must report to the minister with recommendations on each issue, based on the views received in consultation.
The forum's role and responsibilities are formalised in the Employment (Jersey) Law 2003.
