Low Pay Commission: Low Pay Commission consultation 2019

Low Pay Commission: Low Pay Commission consultation 2019

For the National Living Wage, the Low Pay Commission is seeking evidence in order to advise on the viability of the stated target - 60 per cent of median earnings by 2020. The consultation seeks:

  • Views on the affordability and effects of an increase to the ‘on target’ rate for April 2020 – currently around £8.67.
  • Evidence of the impact of increases in the NLW since its introduction – including the April 2019 uprating – on workers, employers, the labour market and the economy.
  • Evidence of how employers are seeking to improve productivity.
  • Evidence on how the economic outlook is affected by the process of leaving the European Union.
