National Minimum and Living Wage guidance
01 April 2016
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has published updated guidance on calculating the minimum wage.
The National Living Wage applies to workers aged 25 and over from 1 April 2016. This new rate of pay was introduced through amendment to the National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015 to ensure that the rules that apply to the National Minimum Wage rates for workers aged under 25 also apply to workers entitled to the National Living Wage.
The guidance on calculating the minimum wage therefore also applies to workers entitled to the National Living Wage and covers eligibility, calculation, working hours to be included and enforcement of the minimum wage.
