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:-

  1. Check who is eligible for the wage increase;
  2. Take the appropriate payroll action;
  3. Let staff know about their new pay rate;
  4. Check that staff under 25 are earning at least the right rate of National Minimum Wage.
