New National Living Wage from 1 April 2016
From 1 April 2016 the minimum wage rate of £6.70 per hour for workers in the UK aged 25 will increase by 50p to £7.20 per hour.
The government is about to start an advertising campaign on this and has, therefore, published a four-step guide for businesses on the living wage website, asking employers to:-
- Check who is eligible for the wage increase;
- Take the appropriate payroll action;
- Let staff know about their new pay rate;
- Check that staff under 25 are earning at least the right rate of National Minimum Wage.
