National Minimum Wage increases announced for October 2014
The Government has announced that the main rate of the national minimum wage will increase by 3% in October 2014. This is the first time in 6 years that the increase will be greater than the rate of inflation. [The Consumer Prices Index - CPI - is currently 1.9%.]

The rate for those aged 21 and over will increase from £6.31 to £6.50 per hour.

Those aged 18 - 20 will see an increase of 10p to £5.13 per hour and those aged 16 - 17 will get an increase of 7p per hour raising it to £3.79. Apprentices will earn an extra 5p per hour taking their wages to at least £2.73.

Employers need to remember that the appropriate rate of pay must also be made to cover travelling time between assignments for those employees that travel between places of work - e.g. for care workers visiting clients at home.
