Minimum Wage Reference Calculator
Default Font SizeLarger Font SizeLargest Font Size
The Minimum Wage Reference Calculator programme is a simple tool to assist employers and employees to quickly and initially compute the minimum wage for the more common work patterns for reference.  After entering all basic information on working hours and wages as required and pressing the "Generate Report" button, the programme will work out the amount of minimum wage and compare it with the wages payable to see if the minimum wage requirement is met.


This calculator programme works according to the data (including working hours and wages) you have entered and certain assumptions on wage calculations.  The computation results generated by the calculator programme are for quick and initial reference only.  Accurate calculations would require consideration of other factors like the terms and conditions under the employment contract and the actual hours worked/leave taken in the month etc.  Since these factors would vary from case to case, they may not be able to be reflected fully in the computation.  The Labour Department accepts no liability for any loss arising from or related to the use of the information.  The information generated by this calculator programme should neither be used in any legal proceedings nor be regarded as evidence in pursuing any claim.

Statutory Minimum Wage (SMW) has come into force since 1 May 2011.  The initial SMW rate was $28 per hour, and was raised subsequently to $30 per hour from 1 May 2013 and $32.5 per hour from 1 May 2015.  The SMW rate is $34.5 per hour with effect from 1 May 2017.  If 1 May 2017 falls within a wage period, the SMW rate of $34.5 per hour applies to any hour worked on or after 1 May 2017 in calculating minimum wage for that wage period.
