Dentons ranks across 68 tables securing 109 individual and 43 practice rankings in Chambers USA
Global law firm Dentons earned 109 individual and 43 practice rankings - a 20% increase over last year - in the most recent edition of Chamber USA.
Following the Government's acceptance of the recommendations put forward by the Low Pay Commission (LPC) back in March this year, UK workers earning the National Minimum Wage (NMW) will enjoy a slight increase in their earnings as of 1st October.
From 1st October, UK employers will be required to pay employees aged between 21 and 24 years old a statutory minimum of £6.95 per hour (up from £6.70), an increase of 3.7%. Those aged between 18 and 20 will enjoy a slightly larger increase of 4.7%, from £5.30 to £5.55. The 16-17 year old rate will be rounded up from £3.87 to £4.00, with the apprentice rate going up by 10 pence to £3.40.
This is the first increase in NMW since the National Living Wage (NLW) came into force in April this year. The NLW will remain static at £7.20 until April 2017 at the earliest. The NLW rate is set to be reviewed this autumn before any changes come into force next year. Shortly after the new NMW rates were announced, David Norgrove, Chair of the LPC, emphasised the importance of bridging the gap between NMW and NLW. This followed concerns that employers may potentially discriminate against those over the age of 25, as those aged 24 and under would cost at least 50 pence per hour less.
The government has set a target of bringing the NLW up to £9.00 by 2020. What does this mean for those aged between 16-24? If the balance isn't right, we may see one of two potentially difficult scenarios emerging: either the gap between NMW and NLW increases at a rate which sees a younger work force as a far more desirable option for employers; or the gap between NMW and NLW narrowing, running the risk of pricing younger workers out of employment. It will be important that future wage rises are reviewed with a view to getting the balance right.
