United Kingdom - List of minimum wage offenders larger than ever - August 31, 2016

After the publication of the list of shame, detailing almost 200 employers who have failed to pay the national minimum wage, trade union confederation TUC stated that employers who try to duck the minimum wage must have nowhere to hide. Trade union Unite warned that the list is just the tip of the iceberg. The 197 companies named owed £465,291 in arrears, across a range of employers including football clubs, hotels, care homes and hairdressers. Since the scheme was introduced in October 2013, 687 employers have been named and shamed, with total arrears of more than £3.5 million.
