Living wage to be introduced in April 2016

January 11, 2016 11:47 pm Published by

From April 2016, employers will need to pay staff aged 25 and over the national living wage, which will become the top rate of the national minimum wage. For those aged under 25, lower national minimum wage rates will apply.

The national living wage will initially be set at £7.20.

Another change concerning minimum pay is the doubling of the penalty for failure to pay staff the national minimum.
