    National Minimum Wage/National Living Wage (NEW FOR 2019/20)

    In recent years we have seen an increase in compliance activity from HMRC in respect of the rules regarding employers’ compliance with the National Minimum Wage/National Living Wage. This has resulted in a number of public bodies being required to pay arrears of pay to employees and fines to HMRC, as well as running the risk of being ‘named and shamed’ for failing to meet their statutory obligations.

    The rules have proved to be quite complex in their application and there are a number of pitfalls whereby employers may inadvertently fail to comply with the legal requirements. Therefore, this course provides a comprehensive overview of the rules and best practice to reduce the risk of compliance failures. For example, this will cover potentially tricky issues in the public sector, such as term-time contracts, salary sacrifice schemes and ‘sleep-in’ payments.

    The course will include guidance on the statutory rules, as well as using a number of case studies derived from real examples on issues that our clients have encountered.

    We recommend this training course to all PSTAX clients and contacts. It will be highly relevant for staff with in HR/payroll.
