Minimum wage consultation launched

The Employment Forum has today launched a consultation on the future minimum wage rates in Jersey. This is the first time since 2019 that the Forum has been able to conduct such an exercise, which will look at all aspects of the financial and economic conditions in the Island. The consultation will inform the Forum’s conclusions and recommendations to the Social Security Minister later in the year.
Commenting on the launch of the consultation, the Chair of the Employment Forum, Carla Benest, said:
“I’m very pleased that the Forum is once again able to undertake a comprehensive review of the minimum wage rates in Jersey. We’re looking forward to engaging with employees and employers and business and trade union organisations right across the Island and in all sectors of the economy. I’d encourage everyone with an interest to take part.”
The consultation runs from 20 June until 31 July. The survey – together with a background paper – can be found on the Employment Forum webpage on the website.
