How much should I be paid?
Your contract of employment will contain an express term specifying your rate of pay and other pay elements, which are a matter of agreement between you and your employer. The rate of pay may result from a collective agreement between the employer and one or more unions.
In any event, of course, the rate must not be below the National Minimum Wage and should not conflict with the Equal Pay Act. If you'd like to find out more about what other people in the UK are paid for doing jobs similar to yours, try our online Pay Reckoner.
