NATIONAL LIVING WAGE BECOMES LAW

Home / News & Opportunities / Chamber News

Date: 01/04/2016

The National Living Wage is now law. From today (01/04/16), all employers need to pay £7.20 per hour to staff aged 25 and over.

Businesses must be ready for the change; the Government is urging bosses to take simple steps quickly to meet legal responsibilities and avoid falling foul of the law:
 
  • Find out which staff are eligible for the new rate
  • Update the company payroll
  • Communicate the changes to staff as soon as possible
 
The National Living Wage will provide a direct boost to over one million workers in the UK this year – rewarding and providing security for working people.
 
The new National Living Wage is a key part of the Government’s plan to continue to move to a higher wage, lower tax and lower welfare society, building a more productive country and giving families the security of well-paid work.
