We're proud to have become Wales' 100th accredited Living Wage Employer.
The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently, updated annually and calculated according to the real cost of living, and Capital has become the 100th Living Wage Employer in Wales, as recognised by Cynnal Cymru.
Paul Clayton, our HR Director, said: “We are thrilled to be announced as the 100th accredited Living Wage employer in Wales. We are very passionate about being a responsible employer and have been working with our contractors to ensure everyone who works for Capital Law is being paid at least the Living Wage. We look forward to working with Cynnal Cymru – Sustain Wales to increase the number of Living Wage employers in Wales.”
The Living Wage Foundation and Cynnal Cymru are delighted to announce that Capital Law has today been accredited as a Living Wage employer. This means Wales has reached 100 accredited Living Wage employers. Since November 2016, Cynnal Cymru – Sustain Wales have become the official accreditation body for the Living Wage in Wales, and the number of organisations paying the Living Wage has increased by a fifth. The Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Capital Law, regardless of whether they are permanent employees or third-party contractors, receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.45, and £9.75 in London. Both these rates are significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.
