New statutory rates that will apply from April 2020

The government has recently announced that rates for statutory maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave pay and maternity allowance will increase to £151.20 per week. Any employee that earns less than this will continue to receive 90% of their average weekly earnings. 

These rates usually take effect on the first Sunday of April, which this year is 5 April.

Also, from 6 April, the statutory sick pay rate will increase to £95.85 per week.
