Following the controversy surrounding National Living Wage targets, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has published the largest list of offenders to date.

More than 16 trade associations called for a slow down or a scrapping of the new National Living Wage, which they claim means they would have to make redundancies to keep up with.

The government responded with a cautious yet finite statement that they will stand behind the policy inherited from the previous government.

They have now published the largest list of National Living Wage offenders, naming 198 businesses who failed to pay their staff the legal minimum wage of £7.20 per hour. This rate which was implemented in April would see some staff making over £900 more a year.

“It is not acceptable that some employers fail to pay at least the minimum wage their workers are entitled to,” business minister Margot James said.

“So we’ll continue to crack down on those who ignore the law, including by naming and shaming them.”
