Non-compliance and enforcement of the National Minimum Wage

Thu, 25 Apr 2019

A Low Pay Commission report finds that the number of people paid less than the statutory minimum wage in the UK increased in 2018. In April 2018 439,000 people were paid less than the hourly minimum wage they are entitled to. Of these, 369,000 were workers aged 25 and over paid less than the National Living Wage (NLW): this equates to 23% of those paid at or below the rate. This is an increase of around 30,000 on the 2017's level of underpayment of the NLW.
