The Committee for Employment & Social Security would like to hear people's views on changes to the Minimum Wage & Associated Rates.
Before changing the Minimum Wage, The Minimum Wage (Guernsey) Law 2009 requires the Committee to consult with organisations, or associations of organisations, representative of employers and employees in Guernsey, and such other organisations and bodies, as appear to be appropriate.
The States have directed the Committee "when they bring proposals to the States for the adult and young persons' minimum wage levels for 2019 to provide clarity on their medium term plan for increasing minimum wage levels" (Billet d'Etat XXIII of 2017, Article 9). When considering this States direction, the Committee is taking the medium term to be the next 5 years. A further option under consideration is for the minimum wage rate to automatically increase by inflation (RPIX). If this approach were adopted, the 2019 minimum wage rate would be £7.94 (a 19p increase) as a result of the 2.4% inflation from June this year.
This consultation closed on 10th September 2018 and results will be published within 4 weeks of the closing date.
