Specific occupations & special groups: disabled workers

For national minimum wage purposes there are no special rules in respect of disabled workers. It should be noted that a person’s productivity or ability is not a factor in establishing entitlement to the national minimum wage.

Some disabled workers might be engaged in therapeutic or permitted work (NMWM06280).
