DTI to expose and fine employers not paying national minimum wage

The DTI has guaranteed it will use its powers to fine employers if the national minimum wage is not being paid.

This comes on top of the compensation to make up unpaid minimum wages.

If a worker complains then it is likely the employer will be investigated by an inspector of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). It is reported that between 2005 and 2006 more than 61,000 calls were made to the NMW help line and 25,314 workers recovered over £3.2 million.
