Can your employer pay you a fixed wage per week so you never see any benefit from increases to your personal tax allowance and national insurance threshold?

    Yes if that is how you are contracted to work for them.

    Yes, I've seen it more with older employers, they pay the employee the set amount and the accountants then work back to gross for NI and tax deductions.

    Legal as long as that is what you agreed to and the gross figure to which the nett one relates means you are receiving at least the national living wage.
