The National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage rates increase on 1 April 2018. The HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy campaign will be running in April.
HMRC want to encourage low-paid workers to come forward to make sure they are getting the wages they are legally entitled to. We are looking to raise worker’s awareness of their entitlement and asking them to report any under-payments for HMRC to investigate if necessary.
Many people who are paid the National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage still lose out on their full entitlement because of a series of common errors made by their employers. Workers often don’t realise that they are being short-changed and that it’s possible for them to get back the money they are owed.
It would be great if you would be willing to share some of our campaign material with your networks; which will include the following, all of which you can customise:
- briefing about the campaign
- social media posts.
