What does your contract say about this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My contract says that w coulstock shall pay to the royal british legion the weekly rent of fifteen pounds in arrears and without deduction every Monday
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Is there any scope for variation at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not that I can see in the contract ,I think they want to raise my wage to above the new minium wage but I would rather be paid the minimum wage and keep my rent asis
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I see.

I'm afraid they are able to do that and it is not only that they are able to. They must do that. They cannot lawfully pay below the minimum wage whatever benefits are offered to replace the wage.

Sorry if that is bad news but that is the reality.

Can I clarify anything for you?
