Workers to receive £1.7 NMW back pay

As part of the government’s routine “naming and shaming” of employers that have failed to pay their staff the national minimum wage, 16,000 workers are set to receive back pay amounting to £1.7 million. According to the latest list, 260 businesses have failed to pay the minimum wage and will now have to pay around £1.7 million worth of back pay to workers, along with £1.3 million in fines.


Common mistakes by employers in this round included failing to pay workers commuting between jobs, refusing to pay overtime and wrongfully deducting money for staff uniforms.
