NATIONAL MINIMUM WAGE/LIVING WAGE The current rates for the National Living Wage and Minimum Wage will increase from April 1. For those aged 23 and over, it will rise from £8.91 per hour to £9.50. To see the full range of rates and for information on how they are applied, Acas have an information page here. COVID-19 RULE CHANGES Acas have advised that, as of February 24, the legal requirement to self-isolate has been removed along with routine contact tracing. They say: "People should still follow Government guidance to self-isolate for at least 5 days if they have symptoms or have tested positive. "Employers who have workplaces within devolved administrations must make sure they follow the appropriate guidance specific to their workplace locations. Policies may therefore need to reflect different guidance as appropriate." Acas have a coronavirus advice page for employers and employees, covering self-isolation and sick play, going to the workplace, Long Covid, disciplinary and grievance procedures and more.
