Minimum Wage Ordinance

 
The Statutory Minimum Wage (SMW) has come into force since 1 May 2011. However, there are some exemptions for specified student interns and work experience students during a period of exempt student employment under the Minimum Wage Ordinance. If you are employed with remunerations below the minimum wage, your employer may ask you/ the University for a Confirmation of “Student Interns” or “Work Experience Students” status.
 
For details of the definition and requirements of the exemptions, please refer to the Statutory Minimum Wage : Notes for Student Employees and Employers published by the Labour Department.
 
If students are required to certify “Work Experience Students” status (normally for non credit-bearing employment), please complete the below form and return with your employment details issued by your employer (e.g. employment contract, etc.) via email to career@hkmu.edu.hk.
