Largest ever list of National Minimum Wage offenders published

Please share the news

The largest list of employers to be named and shamed for failing to pay their workers the National Minimum Wage has been published.

Almost 200 employers who failed to pay their workers the legal minimum have been publicly named, Business Minister Margot James announced.

Between them, the 198 companies named owed £466,219 in arrears, across a range of employers including football clubs, hotels, care homes and hairdressers. All of the money owed to these workers has been paid back to them.

Since the scheme was introduced in October 2013, 688 employers have been named and shamed, with total arrears of more than £3.5 million.

Business Minister Margot James said: “This Government is determined to build an economy that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.

“That means making sure everyone gets paid the wages they are owed – including our new, higher, National Living Wage. It is not acceptable that some employers fail to pay at least the minimum wage their workers are entitled to.

“So we’ll continue to crack down on those who ignore the law, including by naming and shaming them.”

The National Living Wage for workers aged 25 and over was introduced in April this year, which has meant a pay rise of more than £900-a-year for someone previously working full time on the National Minimum Wage. For workers under the age of 25, the National Minimum Wage still applies.

It is an employer’s responsibility to be aware of the different minimum wage rates depending on the circumstances of their workers – and to make sure all eligible workers are paid at least the minimum rate they are entitled to.

The National Living Wage will be enforced equally robustly alongside the National Minimum Wage.
