News: National Insurance abolished for under 21’s

March 29, 2015

The 2015 budget saw George Osborne announce that from 6 April 2015 National Insurance Contributions for workers under the age of 21 will be abolished...

except for those earning more than £42,285 a year. It’s been reported that employers will save £500 per year for an employee under the age of 21 who earns £12,000, and over £1,000 if the employee earns £16,000.

The changes were made with the view to tackle youth unemployment but may lead to increased discrimination claims where a candidate claims that they have been discriminated against during the recruitment process in the favour of a “cheaper” candidate under 21.

Recruiters should remember not to ask a candidate for their age during the recruitment process, to avoid discrimination claims against them.

If you’d like further information on the latest legislation for contractors please contact one of our experts on 0203 713 4530 or email contact@carringtonumbrella.co.uk
