The National Living Wage comes into effect on 1st April 2016.
If you’re working and aged 25 or over and not in the first year of an apprenticeship, you’ll be legally entitled to at least £7.20 per hour as of 1st April 2016.
The NLW will give a pay rise to 1.3m workers this year, according to the OBR, and the target set by the government is to reach £9.00 by 2020. This figure is not to be confused with the National Minimum Wage.
Building Careers UK is dedicated to ensuring fair pay for all our temporary workers, and all wages for those affected will reflect the change in legislation. We will be working in partnership with our clients to ensure all communication is open and transparent.
