The National Employment Council, in consultation with various unions for each sector, determines the minimum wages payable to employees of each sector. Workers are grouped into grades and minimum wage is assigned to that grade.

Employers who pay below these wages are considered to be in arrears and can be taken to labour court where they will be forced to pay all amounts owing.
