INFOMATION-Hundreds of Companies Failing to Pay Minimum Wage

2016-06-01


The government has named 360 businesses which have failed to pay either the National Minimum Wage (NMW) or the National Living Wage (NLW).



Among them are well-known names like Debenhams, Subway, Lloyds Pharmacy and St Mirren Football Club.


More than 15,500 workers had to be paid back nearly one million pounds.


But that may represent just the tip of the iceberg: The Office for National Statistics has calculated that 362,000 jobs did not pay the NMW in April 2016.


The biggest offenders were employers in hairdressing, hospitality and retail.


One worker at a dental practice in London's Harley Street was refunded nearly £12,000.


Minimum Wage


The fashion store Debenhams had to re-pay £134,000 to more than 11,000 staff - more than half of its shop workers - after an accounting error left each of them around £11 short in wages.


The company was fined £63,000.


A spokesperson said, "As a responsible employer Debenhams is committed to the National Minimum Wage, and as soon as the error was identified by a routine HMRC audit last year, we reimbursed all those affected."
