The BIS scheme to name employers who break minimum wage law came into effect on January 2011. Under the scheme, revised in 2013 to name and shame employers publicly, employers that have been issued with a Notice of Underpayment (NoU) will be named by the government, unless they meet one of the exceptional criteria or have arrears of £100 or less.

Employers have 28 days to appeal against the NoU, if the employer does not appeal, or loses their appeal, the BIS will consider them for naming. The employer then has another fortnight to respond. If this appeal is not made or is unsuccessful then they are named under this scheme.
