Grading and Salaries
The EVH cost of living award to be implemented from 1 April 2016 is 1% and the salary spreadsheet was issued in December.
Associate members, and full members who employ staff in subsidiary companies not under the EVH Terms and Conditions should ensure they comply with the new National Living Wage for people 25+ years old, in force from 1 April 2016, which is £7.20 per hour.  Those members who subscribe to the Scottish Living Wage need to ensure they are paying £8.25 per hour. Please also remember these new rates in payroll calculations where either sleepovers or travel time has to be included, to ensure the average hourly rate in each payroll reference period does not fall below the NMW.
