From April 2016 the Government’s new National Living Wage will become law.
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. That’s an extra fifty pence per hour in your pocket. The Government is committed to increasing this every year.
If you are an employer, you will need to make sure you are paying your staff correctly from 1st April 2016. Failure to do so could lead to prosecution.
