Minimum Wage Defaulters Named and Shamed

Employers who have failed to pay the correct National Minimum Wage have been publicly named by the UK Government.

In total,  a further 25 employers who failed to pay their employees the minimum wage have been named under the new regime introduced last October, which makes it easier to name and shame wrongdoers. Between them they owe workers more than £43,000 in arrears and in addition have to pay financial penalties totalling over £21,000.

The Government has introduced a series of tougher measures to crack down on employers that break National Minimum Wage law. As well as being publicly named and shamed, employers that fail to pay their workers the National Minimum Wage also face new penalties of up to £20,000 - four times higher than before.

In addition, the Government plans to legislate in the new parliamentary session so that employers can be given penalties of up to £20,000 for each individual worker they have underpaid, rather than the maximum penalty applying to each employer. This will mean if an employer underpays ten workers, they could face penalties of up to £200,000.
