National Minimum Wage Changes 1 October 2010

Do you comply with the changes to the national minimum wage which comes into force on 1 October 2010?

The adult rate of the national minimum wage will apply to workers of 21 years and over from 1 October 2010 rather than 22 at present.

Those who have turned 21 prior to 1 October and on the “youth development rate” of the National Minimum Wage will get an immediate increase that is likely to amount to nearly 23%.

From October 2010, National Minimum Wage rates will increase from:

£5.80 to £5.93 an hour for workers aged 21 and over
£4.83 to £4.92 an hour for workers aged 18 to 20
£3.57 to £3.64 an hour for workers aged 16 to 17

The rise is around the two per cent mark in each category.

In addition, a new apprentice minimum wage of £2.50 per hour will be applied. The new rate will apply to apprentices under 19 and apprentices aged 19 and over, but in the first year of their apprenticeship.
