Pay reference periods & elements of pay: staff suggestion schemes
The legislation that applies to this page is as follows:
For pay reference periods commencing
* on or after 6 April 2015; National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015, regulation 10(e) * before 6 April 2015; National Minimum Wage Regulations 1999 regulation 8(e)
A payment of an award from a staff suggestion scheme is not a payment for national minimum wage purposes and so does not count towards a worker’s total remuneration (NMWM09050) and is not taken into account when calculating national minimum wage pay.
