National Living Wage

National living wage for workers aged 25 and over

The new National Living Wage becomes law in April 2016 for workers aged 25 and over

From 1 April 2016 workers aged 25 and over will be legally entitled to a new minimum pay rate of £7.20 per hour, called the National Living Wage (NLW).

As an employer you’ll need to check which staff are eligible for the new rates and update your payroll in time.

  1. Whilst I support the living wage, what I am seeing is it now taking its toll, high street chains are folding up and industries such as residential care and transport are finding a real challenge passing the costs along.

    Hopefully, things will stabilise soon as the level is set at 60% of Median earnings.
