Potential changes to the National Minimum Wage’s ‘naming and shaming’ arrangements

Conservative ministers are no longer ‘naming and shaming’ companies that do not pay their workers the legally required national minimum wage, according to Labour MP Stephanie Peacock. Companies have not been ‘named and shamed’ since 6 July 2018, however in April 2019, the Low Pay Commission asked that ‘naming and shaming’ be resumed. The Commission asserted that over 400,000 workers were illegally underpaid by their employers in 2018.
