After the new regulations come into force, the length-of-service allowance will no longer be included in the minimum remuneration for work. The aim is to ensure a transparent model of remuneration for employees receiving the lowest level of remuneration. The new rules will apply from 1 January 2020, while the transitional rules will apply from 1 September 2019.
