Question about wages

Hi

I am a bit confused regarding staff wages.

We work them out from September one year to August the next year.

 

We work them out by working out the weekly pay and times it 38 weeks and then add 5.6 weeks holiday pay and divide by 12 to give us 12 equal payments per year.

 

Now I am confused as my staff member will be on £5.03 per hour from September as she is 20yrs old. However she turns 21 at end of April and so the minimum wage will go up to £6.19.

 

How do I work this out?

 

Sorry if I don't make sense. Hope u can help :-)

I might be terribly wrong here. But isn't the 5.6 for 52 weeks? Therefore 38 weeks would equal less,..... around about 4.8 ish ?

 

In my defence I am very tired so not really got the old brain in gear.

 

Not that any of that helps with you actual problem. :rolleyes: sorry xx

When I was in this situation and the nmw changed in October, I used to work out the higher amount for the full year and subtract the difference for the four weeks of September -if I could be bothered, it was usually just pence anyway. As to the holiday pay, I pay for the full year entitlement as that's what I was told to do, but obviously pro rata.
