April 6th – Or 7th Which is The Date For Changes
April 6th generally brings some changes which affect employers of all including domestic staff and this year is no exception.
However, the new rates itemised below will take effect from next Sunday, April 7th as it is the first Sunday in April.
Statutory Maternity pay will rise to £148.68 per week.
The same date applies to rates for statutory Paternity pay and
Shared Parental Leave which will rise from £145.18 to £148.68
per week or 90% of the employee’s average weekly salary if that
figure is less that the statutory rate of pay for the leave.
Rates normally increase each April in line with the Consumer
Price Index (CPI).
