30p wage increase to NMW


Recommended Posts

Hi, anyone more savvy than me able to say how best to add this increase to April to Augusts monthly wages!

As I have very carefully worked out 12 monthly payments......can I just add:


Total pay + 30p x hours in that month?


Thank you

We haven't been able to do that - we couldn't afford to do that last year either. We explained that our pay rates reflect qualifications and the gov't rates reflect age. We showed staff the differences it made and asked if they would prefer to take the higher rates throughout (and retain the difference between the qualification pay rates) or if they would prefer to have less staff? It wasn't done in a threatening way - it was a proper conversation - we pay staff to have release time in nursery and we pay for coffeee breaks and time when assessors are visiting and staff need to be 'out of numbers' - all these times are covered by additional staff who are there as 'extra hands' all day. In a staff team of 16 working at any one time we have additional pairs of hands who have other roles. One is our housekeeper, and we have two apprentices - none of these have been included in our ratios - these would all go if if we had to maintain the differentials. Staff opted for more hands ... less money.
