New minimum wage rates

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Homecare providers are reminded that the new rate under National Minimum Wage Regulations came into force on 1st October this year. The minimum hourly rate for all homecarers is now up ten pence to £3.70. The other relevant change means that travel between homecare assignments will now count as working hours for the minimum wage. Rules on ‘sitter’ or live-in services are also tightened up.
