United Kingdom -Tougher enforcement minimum wage to include public shaming -October 02, 2013

As of 1 October, new rules come into force that aim to strengthen the enforcement of the minimum wage. The new system includes a public naming and shaming scheme, which makes it possible for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HRMC) to publish information about non-compliant employers. In 2012 and 2013, the HRMC fined 736 employers who had not paid the minimum wage and recovered £3.9 million in wages for over 26,500 workers. From 1 October, the minimum wage is £5.03 per hour for people between 18 and 20, and £6.31 for employees of 21 and older.
