National Living Wage

As well as the usual April Fool’s jokes, 1 April 2016 heralded the arrival of a new National Living Wage.  Under the revised scheme, workers aged 25 and over are now entitled to an increased minimum rate of pay of £7.20 per hour.  This represents an increase of 50p per hour.

Compliance with the new rules will be strongly enforced and, remember, it is a criminal offence for employers not to pay the National Living Wage to those employees who are entitled to receive it.
