This chapter examines the distinct areas of employment law that regulate the payment of wages and benefits. It starts by focusing on the national minimum wage and national living wage legislation, describing how these work in practice and assessing the many debates that still surround the effectiveness and impact of this legislation. It goes on to explain the situations in which employers can and cannot lawfully make deductions from pay packets, the right for all employees to receive an itemised pay statement and the administration of statutory sick pay (SSP). Finally, it briefly discusses the regulation of occupational pension schemes.
