The National Minimum and Living Wage went up on 1 April 2017

If you currently earn less than £7.50 per hour, you should automatically see an increase in your pay after 1 April 2017. It is illegal for your employer to pay you below the National Living Wage, so check your pay and talk to your manager to make sure you’re getting what you are entitled to.

Don’t think you’re getting paid the right amount? Talk to your manager. If you have been underpaid, your employer owes you back pay. Make sure you get what you’re owed.

Feel uncomfortable talking to your manager? Call the Acas helpline for confidential advice and support.

If you’re an employer, by law you must pay workers aged 25 and over the legal National Living Wage. Find out more.
