answer text <p>The UK Living Wage and London Living Wage figures, produced by the Living Wage Foundation, form the basis of their accreditation scheme. These are not statutory figures, and are not therefore legally binding on employers. It is not the policy of the UK government that departments and agencies are required to apply these Living Wage Foundation rates, or to seek accreditation. Instead a statutory National Living Wage is applied for all employees over the age of 25, and National Minimum Wage rates for those under 25, through a policy produced by BEIS and audited and enforced by HMRC.</p><p>Remuneration for all grades below the Senior Civil Service is delegated to individual departments, executive agencies and other organisations. While organisations must comply with the statutory minimum rates, it is for each one to determine pay above this level, and whether or not to match the rates set by the Living Wage Foundation.</p> more like this
