Governance and Transformation Cabinet Member – 26 September 2016
This matter was considered urgent, as it would allow the council to ensure it complied with the NMW implementation date of 1 October 2016, for all apprentices concerned.
The report informed the Cabinet Member that the NMW rates, which included those for apprentices, was due to increase with effect from 1 October 2016.
The report highlighted the current rates of pay for all apprentices and identified what impact the NMW increase in pay would have on its apprentices.
Resolved – That in line with the National Minimum Wage requirement, as set out in option 1 at paragraphs 3.1 and 3.2 of the report, the increase in the rates of pay for all apprentices be approved and adopted
