Have your say on the new UK minimum wage rates
The Low Pay Commission (LPC) has recently opened an online survey seeking views on the government’s proposed changes to the national minimum wage and the introduction of the new national living wage (as part of their public consultation into the new arrangements which has been ongoing since 29 July 2015).
This follows the announcement made on 8 July 2015 of the introduction of a compulsory living wage of £7.20 per hour for workers aged 25 and above which is to come into force in April 2016, rising to £9 by 2020.
Read our recent blog discussing the proposed arrangements.
The survey seeks to gather views from various interest groups – employers, employees, individuals wanting to express their personal views, independent bodies and representatives of organisations. It asks questions about the respondents’ knowledge of existing rates and views on the level of future rates.
Have your say before it is too late – both the consultation and the survey close on the 25 September 2015. Complete the confidential survey online.
