National Living Wage Rise on April 1st 2019


As of April 1st 2019, the Government’s ‘National Living Wage’ rises to £8.21 for over 25’s. Despite this, NLW workers are over £1500 worse off than workers on the real Living Wage. In fact, an employee on the new government NLW rate of £8.21 has to work 25 additional days a year to earn the same as workers on the real Living Wage, which is calculated against the real cost of Living.




18-20 year olds paid the new government NLW rate of £8.21 miss out on over £5k compared to those worker’s receiving the real Living Wage based on the real cost of living.


Join over 5000 employers going further than the government’s minimum:

Acas working for everyone

Acas has released new guidance to help organisations understand and better support neurodiversity in the workplace.

- What is Neurodiversity?
- Types of neurodivergence
- Why should employers be taking steps to support neurodiversity in their workplace?
- Changing your workplace to better support neurodiversity
- Managing staff with ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other forms of neurodivergence
- Working when neurodivergent
- Research and case studies



The Acas blog

Tom Neil, Acas Guidance writer talks about how we can celebrate neurodiversity in the workplace. It is estimated that around 1 in 7 people in the UK have a form of neurodivergence - such as Autism, or Dyslexia. Yet a recent CIPD survey found that only one in ten HR professionals said that their organisation was focusing on neurodiversity at work. Read more here.
