Underpaying employers 'will face tough consequences'

Employers paying under the minimum wage "will face tough consequences", Business Minister Jenny Willot said.

Paying less than the minimum wage is not only wrong, it's illegal. If employers break the law they need to know that they will face tough consequences.

Any worker who is entitled to the minimum wage should receive it. If anyone suspects they are not being paid the wage they are legally entitled to they should call the Pay and Work Rights helpline on 0800 917 2368.
