Minimum Wage (0708P2)

Status: Lapsed | Zone: Student Finances

Passed: 04/02/2014 | Lapsed: 04/02/2014

This policy was discussed at the following meetings:

  • The current national minimum wages:
    (a)  The ‘main rate’ for workers aged 22 is £5.52 an hour
    (b) The ‘development rate’ for 18-21 year olds is £4.60 an hour
  • The great majority of our students fall into the 18-21 age bracket
  • The financial benefit to SUSU of introducing a two tier wage structure will be around £15,000 per year
  • SUSU should not discriminate against its’ employees on the basis of their age
  • The introduction of such discrimination runs contrary to the SUSU Equal Opportunities Statement (E2.2)
  • Our ability to offer competitive wages is an important factor in attracting good quality staff
  • To continue paying the main rate of minimum wage to all non-salaried employees, no matter what their age may be
    Sorry, there are no Mandates for this policy
