Redundancy, unfair dismissal awards to increase

The National Minimum Wage will be:

  • £6.50 ph for a worker who is aged 21 years or over (up from £6.31);
  • £5.13 ph for a worker who is aged 18 years or over (but under 21) (up from £5.03) ;
  • £3.79 ph for a worker who is aged under 18 years (up from £3.72);
  • £2.73 ph for apprentices under regulation 5 (up from £2.68).
