Measures to ensure people receive fair pay announced
The Government has announced measures to ensure people receive the pay they are entitled to. The measures include: doubling the penalties for non-payment of the National Minimum Wage and the new National Living Wage; increasing the enforcement budget; setting up a new team in HMRC to take forward criminal prosecutions for those who deliberately do not comply; and ensuring that anyone found guilty will be considered for disqualification from being a company director for up to 15 years.Link to Announcement
