This Minimum Wage Reference Calculator programme is a simple tool to assist employers and employees to speedily compute the minimum wage for the more common work patterns for preliminary reference purpose.  After entering all basic information on working hours and wages as required and pressing the "Generate Report" button, the calculator 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.

NOTE

Please note that this calculator programme works according to the data you have entered and is based on certain assumptions on wage calculations.  The computation results generated by the calculator programme are for quick and preliminary reference only.  Accurate calculations would require consideration of other factors like the terms 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 in the computation results.  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 and the initial SMW rate was $28 per hour.  The SMW rate of $30 per hour came into force on 1 May 2013 and is raised to $32.5 per hour with effect from 1 May 2015.  If 1 May 2015 falls within a wage period, the SMW rate of $32.5 applies to any hour worked on or after 1 May 2015 in calculating minimum wage for that wage period.

For details about minimum wage calculations, you may refer to the Statutory Minimum Wage: Reference Guidelines for Employers and Employees or call the 24-hour Enquiry Hotline 2717 1771 (handled by "1823").
