The National Minimum Wage Regulations come into force on 1 April 2016. It is important to check that all members of the team are being paid above the new thresholds. Read on for more information…
These regulations bring into force the National Living Wage, which is the National Minimum Wage plus a “premium” for workers aged 25 and over. The aim of these new regulations is to achieve a National Living Wage of over £9 by 2020.
Aged 25 and over £7.20 per hour
Aged 21-25 £6.70 per hour
Aged 18-21 £5.30 per hour
Aged 18 and under £3.87 per hour
