Abstract/Citation: This Order was issued under s. 20 of the Labour Relations Act 1985 (Act 16/85) (LS 1985 - Zim. 1). It fixes minimum wages, set forth in Schedule 1, and minimum wages and allowances, set forth in Schedule 2, which employers must pay. In determining an employee's minimum wage entitlement, no account may be taken of any other remuneration not forming part of an employee's fixed or ordinary wage (s. 5(4); not applicable to seasonal workers). Casual employees are to be paid not less than double the wage fixed in the Schedule (s. 5(5)). The Notice limits the circumstances in which deductions from wages and withdrawal and reduction of benefits and allowances may be made (ss. 6 and 7). Minimum wages shall be paid without discrimination on the grounds of race, sex or age (s. 8). The Notice provides for conversion of rates and possible exemptions . It repeals the Minimum Wages (Specification of Minimum Wages) Notice 1985 (S.I. 186 of 1985), as amended by S.I. 219A of 1985.
