National Living Wage

March 4th, 2016  |  Published in Uncategorized

In April the Government’s new National Living Wage will become law. Its just a rebranding of the minimum wage for political purposes but if you are an employer you do need to take notice.

If you’re working and aged 25 or over and not in the first year of an apprenticeship, you’ll be legally entitled to at least £7.20 per hour.

If you’re an employer, you’ll need to make sure you’re paying your staff correctly from 1st April 2016, as the National Living Wage will be enforced as strongly as the current National Minimum Wage.


From April 2016, all workers aged 25 and over are legally entitled to at least £7.20 per hour.

Take these four steps to be ready for the change:
Check you know who is eligible in your organisation. Find out on GOV. UK’s employment status page.
Take the appropriate payroll action.
Let your staff know about their new pay rate.
Check your staff under 25 are earning at least the right rate of National Minimum Wage.
