Employment Law Bulletin October 2015


A new ‘Living Wage’?

On 1st October the National Minimum Wage rose to £6.70 per hour for those aged 21 and over. An increase in the rate happens every October, of course, but next year we will enter new territory. In April 2016 a special supplement will be added to the National Minimum Wage for workers aged 25 and over to make up a ‘National Living Wage’ of £7.20 per hour.
