Nearly 200 employers named and shamed for underpaying thousands of minimum wage workers
In the latest naming and shaming round, the Government released the names of nearly 180 employers for underpaying 9,200 minimum wage employers by £1.1 million. Employers were fined £1.3 million for the underpayments. It comes ahead of the next rate rise on 1 April 2018, when the national living wage will go up from £7.50 to £7.83 per hour. Apprentices under the age of 19 and those in the first year of their apprenticeship will benefit from a record 5.7% rise.https://www.gov.uk/government/news/nearly-200-employers-named-and-shamed-for-underpaying-thousands-of-minimum-wage-workers
