Paying the Minimum Wage during the subsidy period

Paying the Minimum Wage during the subsidy period 
  • Employment NZ’s website states that during the subsidy period, if an employee is not actually working, employers can choose to pay a minimum of 80% of an employee’s pre-COVID-19 income. So, for an employee on the minimum wage who isn’t working, employers could continue to pay them at 80% of last year’s minimum wage. The employee must be paid at the new minimum wage when they do start working again.
