Trainee rate

As an employer you can pay a trainee rate to employees doing approved training in a new job.

The trainee rate varies on the first and second year. See the table above for the current rates.

​Approved training

Approved training has to be agreed in writing by both the employer and employee before the employee starts their new job.

The training has to have structure and objectives that relate to the employee's performance and training outcomes must be assessed and documented.

You can find more information on JACS website.

Reviewing the minimum wage

Because of COVID-19, the Employment Forum was unable to follow it's usual practice and make a recommendation about minimum wage rate increases for 2021 to 2022.

Instead, the Minister for Social Security Deputy, Judy Martin, made an Order using COVID-19 emergency legislation to set out the rates to apply from 1 January 2022.​
