Can I pay my 15 year old to work with me during the holidays? Like a summer job.
Yes they can work for you during the holidays.
It is a bit of a strange area as there is no minimum wage for under 16 years (so in theory you can pay whatever you like) but the restrictions are;
- They can only work a maximum of 25 hours a week and entitled to breaks
- Providing their total income doesn’t exceed the personal allowance then they do not need to go on the payroll
- They is not ‘overpaid’ for the type of work they carries out
