I recently received a pay rise in work bringing my hourly rate of pay above the old national minimum wage. I am aware that the minimum wage has recently increased. If my hourly rate with pay rise before the NMW increase was lower than the new NMW (£6.31), is my employer allowed to simply pay me £6.31, or must the new NMW also see the pay rise?

 

And are employers allowed to revoke an increase in pay?

Your employer MUST pay you at or above the CURRENT NMW. No if's no buts. Any pay rises are separate.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Pay rise was £0.11 (wow, still... money is money) Before the increase it was 6.30, now it's 6.42, only a small increase, but if the employer wished, they could they have just increase me rate of pay to 6.31 with the NMW increase, forgetting the bonus, simply based on the fact that £6.31 is higher than my old rate?

The payrise would have been in line with the old min wage. So if yoru old wage including pay rise was say £6.50 and the min wage went up to £6.55, then the employer only has to pay £6.55. Any further wage increase is at their own discretion.
