The regulations amend the National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015 to increase the various rates of the national minimum wage.

The new national living wage of £7.20 an hour for workers aged 25 and over, which came into force on 1 April 2016, will not change on 1 October.

The new minimum wages from 1 October 2016 will be:

  • for a worker aged 25 and over - £7.20 per hour;
  • for a worker aged 21 years and over (but not yet aged 25) - £6.95 per hour;
  • for a worker aged 18 years and over (but not yet aged 21) - £5.55 per hour
  • for a worker aged under 18 (but above compulsory school age) - £4.00 per hour; and
  • for a worker to whom the apprenticeship rate applies - £3.40 per hour.
All employers should ensure that these changes are implemented with immediate effect from 1 October 2016.
