If you are a worker aged 25 and over, and not in your first year of an apprenticeship, you are legally entitled to at least the National Living Wage. Until 31 March 2017, this is set at £7.20 per hour. From 1 April 2017, it will go up to £7.50 per hour.

If you currently earn less than £7.50 per hour, you should automatically see an increase in your pay after 1 April 2017. It is illegal for your employer to pay you below the National Living Wage, so check your pay and talk to your manager to make sure you’re getting what you are entitled to.
