New minimum wage from 1 October 2012

Those who employ domestic staff need to be aware of a change to the adult national minimum wage and accommodation offset allowances which come into force on 1 October 2012.

The government has accepted the recommendation of the Low Pay Commission and, from that date, the new adult minimum wage will rise from £6.08 per hour to £6.19 per hour.  Not a lot perhaps, but enough to generate a problem if one continues with the old rate unknowingly.

At the same time the accommodation offset will be increased by 9 pence to £4.18 per day.
