An increase in National Living Wage and Minimum Wage is to be made on 1st April 2017. This applies for all working people. This will be set at £7.50 per hour. Scattergoods welcome this increase in minimum hourly rates for the National Minimum Wage
In addition to this increase we are able to confirm that no Agency Workers employed by Scattergoods Agency no matter what their age, will be paid less than the new National Living Wage.
No Wage reductions for younger workers
There will be no reduction from the National Living Wage hourly rates for those workers under the age of 25 years.
Younger workers are expected generally to perform the same duties to the same standards and requirements as older workers, and there is generally no allowance made due to age, against duties required. Therefore all less than 25 years of age workers of Scattergoods Agency should morally receive and will be paid the same hourly rate as older workers are legally entitled to receive from April 2017.
Scattergoods remains committed to a policy of a fair wage for work done and will continue its policy of paying above the statutory Living and Minimum Wage thresholds
