Employers need to be aware that as from 1 April 2016, all workers aged 25 and over are legally entitled to be paid a minimum of £7.20 per hour, unless they in the first year of an apprenticeship.
Employers should be sure to:
1- Check which of their employees are eligible;
2- Make sure that they inform payroll;
3- Inform eligible staff of their new pay rate;
4- Make sure other staff are being paid at least national minimum wage for their age bracket.
