Such agreements can help avoid labour disputes and simplify the process of negotiating terms between a very large number of different employers and employees. In addition, expenses such as travel and accommodation expenses paid to employees under a WRA are not considered income for tax purposes. The Joint Construction Industry Council (JC) Labour Rules Agreement is the largest such agreement in the construction industry, covering more than 500,000 workers. The 500,000 workers are subject to the minimum wage rates set out in the agreement, and most fall under the entire agreement, which includes, among other things, travel expenses and fares. HMRC explains on EIM 50605ff. how certain construction and civil engineering employees can receive travel and accommodation allowances under standard work arrangements without tax being deducted under PAYE. Working arrangements are developed between employers` associations and trade unions and set the working conditions of many workers in construction and related sectors. Civil Engineering Procedure, 7th Edition, published by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), defines a Working Rules Agreement (WRA) as follows: The Scottish Building Federation is the only Scottish body to be a signatory to the Joint Construction Industry Council`s Working Rule Agreement (WRA). The WRA is the largest industrial contract in the construction industry with approximately 400,000 employees. This collectively negotiated operational employment contract sets standard working conditions for conditions such as remuneration, overtime, leave, illness, pensions, travel and subsistence. SBF members are free to use the working rule agreement or work with SBF to develop more individual contractual terms. From Monday 24.
As of June 2019, the following basic wage rates and allowances apply: Employers should note that if a trainee is in the second or final year of training and is between the age of 21 and 24, the national minimum wage must apply. For apprentices aged 25 and over and in the second or final year of training, the national living wage must apply. These are enforceable by HMRC. All of the above were agreed as part of the 2018 salary and conditional negotiations. If you have any questions about the changes, please contact Gerry Lean, Employer Secretary at the Joint Construction Industry Council, email@example.com. Currently, the national minimum wage for people aged 21-24 is £7.70 per hour and the national living wage for people aged 25 and over is currently £8.21 per hour. These will increase from 1 April 2020. The full agreement on the working rules can be found in the download area of our members area. **The original promulgation was published on May 24, 2019. However, the Fare & Travel scales had been miscalculated and this promulgation replaces them with the correct figures. No adjustments should be made to employees who have already been paid according to the old scales, but the new correct scales included in this announcement must be applied as soon as possible.** To access SBF`s work support services, please contact Paul Mitchell or Cindy Coates at the DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AFFAIRS SER 0131 556 8866.
