National Minimum Wage Increases

The National Minimum Wage (NMW) will experience increases effective from 1 April 2024. For people over 21, the National Minimum (Living) Wage will elevate from £10.42 to £11.44. Those aged between 18-20 will see an increase from £7.49 to £8.60, while individuals aged 16-17 and apprentices will observe a rise from £5.28 to £6.40. The NMW, a mandatory wage floor for all employers, regardless of size or sector, must be upheld. Employers may set wages above this threshold but cannot pay less than the levels mandated by the National Minimum Wage Act 1998 and the National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015.
