Statutory Minimum Wage

Statutory Minimum Wage (SMW) (HK$32.5 per hour with effect of 1 May 2015) does not apply to student interns as well as work experience students during a period of exempt student employment.

In such cases, student needs to provide a document called "Confirmation of Student Intern (or Work Experience Student) Status Under the Minimum Wage Ordinance" (can be downloaded below) and be brought to the Applied Physics Department (Cecilia at CD616) to seek endorsement.
