Do employers have to pay the Living Wage rates by law?

Thu, 08/31/2017 - 13:26 -- Sarah Vero

The Living Wage is a voluntary higher rate of base pay. It provides a benchmark for responsible employers who choose to pay their employees a rate that meets the basic cost of living in the UK and London. It is higher than the government's National Minimum Wage rates, including the minimum wage rate for over-25s (the 'National Living Wage') because it is calculated according to the cost of living.
