Background Information: The Cambridge Weighting is applied to pay rates for employees to achieve a minimum rate of £10.00 per hour where the hourly salary rate and the Real Living Wage (currently £9.90 per hour) do not achieve the £10.00 minimum. This pay policy also applies to agency workers once they qualify for the Real Living Wage supplement. The proposal is to increase the Cambridge Weighting following increases to the Real Living Wage (due in September) and the national NJC pay award which is currently being negotiated.
