Employers that have signed up to pay the Voluntary Living Wage employers should note the announcement on 11 November 2019 about increases.
These have to be implemented within 6 months of the announcement:
|Rate||November 2018||November 2019|
|The Living Wage||9.00||9.30|
|The London Living Wage||10.55||10.75|
The Living Wage Foundation has produced a booklet ‘Living Wage for the Real Cost of Living’ which details their expectations of a Living Wage Employer.
