Employers ‘named and shamed’

The government has published a list of over 350 employers who have underpaid their employees the national minimum wage (NMW) or national living wage. The scheme was introduced in January 2011. The total of employers listed have underpaid 15,513 employees, examples of the breaches include using tips to top up pay, deduction taken from employee’s wage to pay for their Christmas party and making employees pay for their own uniform.

HMRC has issued penalities against employers for around £80,000, the Government states it is committed to ensuring all employers are compliant with the NMW and will spend £25.3 million on minimum wage enforcement.
