Training, initial rate, words to that effect. Its been dropped from last year, I notice.

Edit: £3.40 an hour for under 18s? Obviously the government intends to railroad people into education by setting the rates lower...

Report him.

He's all-but using slave labour at £2 ph, and clearly he isn't doing employing you in an official capacity (also illegal).

Oh, and I echo the suggestion to get a better job.

my gf was offered something along the lines of £60 a week whilst training in some textiles thing but this was all legit etc, it was only that low because for certain things i dont think there is actually a minimum, its whatever the employer can afford, which wasnt much in this case, she found something better where they offered her alot more though, but as with alot of training positions she got shafted, she got 2 weekends a month off. Needless to say that didnt last all that long.

£45 for 22 hours work is illegal, and since there is obviously no contract of employment, you would immediatley win if you took it to court.

but would i also get the non logged hours, that were witnessed by the manager?

I think getting (at least) full minimum wage for your logged hours, and embarrassing the company in court should be your main objectives.

If / when you win, it will be up to the judge to rule on any additional hours. He may find in your favour on that also, but it will depend on the evidence you have. Will the manager(s) that witnessed your extra hours testify against the company? If not, it might be worth forgetting them.

What actually happened is irrelevant, from a legal perspective. What you can prove is the only thing of importance.
