National Minimum Wages Increases

3 October 2014: On the 1st October 2014 the National Minimum Wage increased. It’s now:

Adults:                  Up from £6.31 to £6.50 per hour

Young Worker:  Up from £5.03 to £5.13 per hour.

The London Living Wage remains £8.80 per hour for the coming year until November 2014 but that is non-binding. Don’t spend it all at once!


Also in the news: From the 1st October 2014 Fathers and partners will be entitled to time off to accompany a pregnant woman to an antenatal appointment on up to two occasions. Employees will be eligible to take advantage of the new right straight away without accruing a minimum period of service. Although the right covers agency workers, a minimum service requirement applies for them. See the government Guide for Employers.


Where an equal pay claim is submitted on or after 1 October 2010, and the employment tribunal finds that there has been an equal pay breach, it must order the employer to carry out an equal pay audit unless an exception applies.


We are employment solicitors based in Central London WC1. See or call 0207 118 0950 for more information.
