Enforcement Action for Failure to Pay Minimum Wage

The owner of a nursery in Manchester has been disqualified from being a director of a limited company for six years for failing to pay 12 members of staff the minimum wage at her nursery.

The wage underpayments reached a total of £11,789, and the company was issued with a £5,000 penalty, the maximum fine at the time, which remained outstanding at the date of liquidation.

On 5 February 2016, BIS published a list of more than 90 companies who have failed to pay workers the national minimum wage as part of their plan to name and shame offenders.

With this current crack-down on offenders it is vital that all employers ensure that they are compliant.
