All employers need to be aware that National Living and Minimum Wage rates increased on 1 April 2023. For example, the National Living Wage for employees aged 23 and over increased by 9.7% to £10.42.
Employers should ensure that workers are paid correctly according to the new rates. Take these simple steps should help Made in Britain members meet your legal responsibilities and avoid falling foul of the law:
• Check what the new rates are at gov.uk/checkyourpay.
• Identify which staff are eligible for the new rate.
• Update the company payroll, and communicate the changes to staff as soon as possible.
• Call the Acas Helpline for advice and support to understand what is required to pay workers correctly.
• Visit the calculating the minimum wage guidance page to view practical advice.
Even if your company is paying your workers at or above the National Living Wage or National Minimum Wage, you could still be underpaying them. This can easily happen when an employer makes wage deductions or doesn’t pay for all time worked.
