The national minimum wage in the UK took effect from 1 April 1999. From the beginning it has treated workers under the age of 22 years as a separate group,now paying them a development rate, rather than the full adult rate. The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 contained an exception for the age related pay levels. The issue discussed is whether the lower rates paid to 1821- year-olds and 1617-year-olds can be objectively justified in accord with the Framework Directive on Equal Treatment in Employment and Occupation. This objective justification requires a legitimate aim and a proportionate means of achieving this aim.
