National Minimum Wage Changes

We have heard about changes to the National Living Wage for the over 25s starting at £7.20 next year and rising to £9 an hour by 2020, but until then:

National Minimum Wage rises from 01 October 2015 will therefore be as follows:
  • from £6.50 to £6.70 for adult workers aged 21 and over;
  • from £5.13 to £5.30 for the development rate that covers workers aged 18 to 20 years old;
  • from £3.79 to £3.87 for 16 to 17 year olds.
The apprentice rate will be £3.30. This is an increase of 57p an hour (21%) from £2.73 to £3.30 for the apprentices’ rate.

Also, in the case of Grisanti v NBC News Worldwide Inc, an employment tribunal has held that the six-year time limit that applies to contract claims in the civil courts does not also apply to contract claims brought in the employment tribunal. The general time limit set down by S.5 of the Limitation Act 1980, which is six years ‘from the date on which the cause of action accrued’ does not apply to such claims.
