Apr 2016 - Increased Red Tape - Are you ready?
More Back-Office hassles and increased red tape – are you ready?
As an Agency you’ll no doubt be experienced at handling the ever increasing red tape and back-office hassles, but on the off chance that you’ve been trading with your eyes and ears closed - The Government’s new National Living Wage is now law!
In short - if you’re working and aged 25 or over and not in the first year of an apprenticeship, you are legally entitled to at least £7.20 per hour. That’s an extra fifty pence per hour. The Government is committed to increasing this every year.
If you’re an employer, and this obviously includes the temps you employ on behalf of your clients, then you’ll need to make sure you’re paying your staff correctly, as the National Living Wage will be enforced as strongly as the current National Minimum Wage.
