Do you work?
Are you getting all your rights?
An alliance of local advice centres wants to make sure you know your rights.
The National Minimum Wage
Most employees should receive the following hourly rate:
Aged 16 or 17 £3.30
Aged 18 – 21 £4.45
Aged 22 or over £5.35
You also have other rights at work we can tell you about, such as your rights to paid holiday.
Depending on your age and circumstances, if you work 16 hours or over per week, you may be able to claim Working Tax Credit, which can include money for childcare. If you look after a child you may be able to claim Child Tax Credit.
The rules for these, and other, rights can be complex. So we are here to help you with a completely free and independent service. We have a programme of information events that we hope you can visit, or you can ring this Helpline:
0845 120 2968
Lines open: Mon – Fri 9.30am – 3.30pm (from February 26th to April 5th 2007). Telephone help in community languages will be available on Thursdays: See the PDF version of this page for more details.
