New NMW rates, make sure you comply!

New NMW rates, make sure you comply!

As an employer, or prospective employer of domestic/household staff it is important that you keep up to date with changing and current rates of pay for the National Minimum Wage, particularly as the penalties for non-compliance have become considerably greater.

From the 1st of October  (2016) the following rates have applied

  • For workers aged 21-24 year olds, NMW has increased from £6.70 to £6.95 per hour
  • For workers aged 18-20 year olds, NMW has increased from £5.30 to £5.55 per hour
  • For workers over compulsory school age but not yet 18, NMW has increased from £3.87 to £4.00 per hour
  • The apprentice rate (for apprentices under the age of 19, or 19 and over but in the first year of apprenticeship) has increased from £3.30 to £3.40 per hour.

Claiming that you were unaware of the payment scale is no protection from the now very heavy financial penalties which can be imposed These have been raised to a maximum of £20,000 per employee affected

The pay rate for the National Living Wage, as set by the government and which only applies to employees aged 25 years and older, is currently £7.30 an hour. The date at which this will be reviewed is April 2017.

Ensure you comply, it’s cheaper!
