Be mindful of minimum wage increases from Sunday!

The Minimum Wage increases on Sunday 1st April. What are the implications for employers that fail to roll this out?  Well, they can be faced with financial penalties and possibly more damaging, could be name and shamed in a Government press release.  But what if you inadvertently miscalculate and make errors in your payroll?  It is essential to avoid making the following mistakes:

Including tips, service charges and gratuities. These should not be use when calculating minimum pay for employees.

Including premium rates of pay such as overtime, shift allowance or extra pay for carrying out specific tasks. Again this does not count towards minimum wage.

Deducting expenses such as uniforms, be careful that this does not take your employees hourly rate to below the minimum wage.
