National Minimum and Living Wage Rate increases from 1 April
Remember that pay rates increase on 1st April 2019 so it may be time to do an audit of ages of staff to ensure that you are paying the correct wages to staff.
The National Minimum Wage (NMW) is the minimum pay per hour that workers (other than apprentices) under the age of 25 are entitled to by law. The Government’s National Living Wage (NLW) is the minimum pay per hour most workers aged 25 and over are entitled to by law.
New rates from 1st April 2019
If a worker receives above NMW there is no legal obligation on an employer to increase their pay when the NMW rate increases.
