I think it's decided by how much you have the potential to earn.

I used to work every other Saturday in four hour shifts when I was 15. I didn't have an NI card and my employer didnt want my NI number when I finally got it.

Employers need your NI number so that national insurance can be deducted from your wages. This will only happen if you're earning over a certain threshold a week, which I think is higher than what you can earn from working the legal hours allowed for under 16's. I've only had to pay national insurance once, and that's when I earned over £300 a month during Christmas.

So I think you can work if you don't have an NI card because you're under 16, but few employers want under 16's working for them.

it kind of depends on who you work for, a big chain company has procedures and will obide by the law so probably wont employ underage people, whereas in my experience small self-owned shops etc... may not mind

yes, a friend of mind was i think 14/15 and was paid £2.50 an hour, which wasn't particularly nice, and then when he turned 16 and elidgeable for more pay, they got rid of him (fired and not drowned in a river)

i am 15 and am sick of not getting a job. i did paper delivery for a few months but gave up after discovering that first i did 264 homes and only got £3 for it (delivering and putting them together) but they docked my pay, once because i couldn't deliver to a house because it had NO MAILBOX and they didn't answer the door and another time because the same house had left there gaurd dog out and it went for me if i tried to get through the gate so instead of not delivering i tied it up with a rubber band and threw it at the door at which the house owner complained so instead of £3 i got 67p!!!
