National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage: 2016 evidence

Read the CIPD's submission to the Low Pay Commission

In August 2016, the CIPD responded to the Low Pay Commission’s call for evidence on the National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage. The submission draws on the CIPD’s Summer 2016 Labour Market Outlook, a survey of 1,050 CIPD member employers carried out in the second half of June 2016. The submission covers the following:

  • Outlook for the UK economy, including employment and unemployment levels
  • Wage growth and inflation in the last year and forecast for the next two years
  • Impact of the National Living Wage (e.g. effects on employment, hours, earnings, pay structures, benefits etc.)
  • Rate of increase in the National Living Wage through to 2020
