UK Government to name and shame NMW cheats

NMW Cheats are now to be named & shamed!

Those who flout the law and pay workers (actors) less than the National Minimum Wage (NMW) are soon to be named and shamed under a new government incentive announced earlier today by the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS).

Read the Uk Government’s News Distribution Service article:

Employment Relations Minister Edward Davey said:

“Bad publicity can be a powerful weapon in the fight against employers who try to cheat their workers and their competitors. Their reputation can be badly damaged if they are seen to be flouting the law.

“Responsible employers should also make themselves aware of the new rates that come into effect (1 October). The increases to the National Minimum Wage this year are appropriate for the economic climate. They will strike a balance between helping the lowest paid whilst at the same time not jeopardising their employment.
