National minimum wage increases
The national minimum wage rates increase with effect from 1 October 2011.
The above rates set the minimum hourly pay that most workers in the UK are entitled to be paid. The employer is obliged to pay the minimum rate irrespective of whether the employee works full-time or part-time. The minimum rates also apply to all agency workers and temporary and casual workers. There are no exclusions for smaller employers.
