All workers are legally entitled to be paid the National Minimum Wage (NMW), including temporary or seasonal staff, who often work short-term contracts in bars, hotels, shops, or other tourism-based businesses.

The National Minimum Wage hourly rates, which have applied since 1 April 2023 are:

  • £10.42 – age 23 or over (National Living Wage),

  • £10.18 – age 21 to 22,

  • £7.49 – age 18 to 20,

  • £5.28 – age under 18, and

  • £5.28 – apprentice.

If you need help on paying temporary staff please contact us and ask for a member of our payroll team. Alternatively the ACAS website or helpline can provide advice if you need employment law or workplace advice.
