  • Minimum Wage Act 1983

    The current minimum wage law that provides all employees with a guaranteed minimum wage and an annual review by the New Zealand government.

    Over the years, the act has been supported with other legislation to reduce the gap between youth and adult wage rates. For example, the Minimum Wage Amendment Act 2007 provided that workers between the age of 16 and 17 and workers in training could no longer be paid less than 80% of the adult minimum wage rate.
