United Kingdom -Compliance report only ‘tip of the iceberg’ -October 23, 2015

According to a report published by the government, 115 employers have failed to pay 1,700 workers the National Minimum Wage (NMW). However, the trade union confederation TUC estimates that at least 250,000 workers were being denied their legal pay, and that only a quarter of the offenders are being caught. The TUC argued in a 2013 report that the NMW enforcement regime must be subject to a process of continual improvement in order to keep up with those employers who actively look for new ways to try to evade their responsibility to pay the National Minimum Wage. One of the prominent non-complying companies named in the report is the fashion retailer Monsoon.
