The NMW Act of 2018 enjoins the NMW Commission to annually review rates and make recommendations to Employment and Labour Minister on any adjustment of the National Minimum Wage, while also reflecting on alternative views, including those of the public.

In considering the annual adjustment, the NMW Commission takes into account the following factors: inflation, the cost of living, and the need to retain the value of the minimum wage; gross domestic product; wage levels and collective bargaining outcomes; productivity; ability of employers to carry on their businesses successfully; the operation of small, medium or micro-enterprises and new enterprises; likely impact of the recommendation adjustment on employment or the creation of employment
