From 1 April 2016, workers aged 25 and over must be paid at least the new national living wage of £7.20 per hour. But is this simply another band of the minimum wage? And what should employers be doing now to prepare?
On this week's XpertHR Weekly, we look the recent Employment Appeal Tribunal hearing, British Gas Trading Ltd v Lock and another on the calculation of holiday pay and other key cases likely to have a practical impact on HR in 2016.
In this week's podcast, we look at the legal changes that come into force on 1 October 2015, including those relating to: anti-slavery statements; extension of the exemption from wearing a safety helmet for Sikhs; increases to national minimum wage rates; and the new Fit for Work service.
