Letter Advising Worker of Pay Rate Increase Due to Moving to a Higher Age Band of the National Minimum Wage
This letter advising worker that their pay rate is increasing as a result of moving to a higher age band of the National Minimum Wage should be sent to employees between the ages of 16 and 21 just before their birthday to inform them that their salary will be increasing in line with the requirements of the National Minimum Wage Act.
The National Minimum Wage Act 1998 sets down minimum hourly pay bands for certain employees. The standard rate is set by the government and may be subject to increase in April each year. Please refer to the HMRC website for the latest rate of NMW.
Employers should be aware that a failure to increase a worker's pay to reflect an increase in the rate of the minimum wage is a breach of national minimum wage legislation.
