PDF, 512KB, 46 pages
This is the Low Pay Commission’s third stand-alone report into non-compliance and enforcement of the National Minimum Wage and builds on a similar report published last year. This report looks at the available evidence on how many low-paid workers are underpaid and who these individuals are. It examines the Government’s approach to enforcing the minimum wage, as well as highlighting some important policy challenges around the underpayment of apprentices and workers’ access to pay information.
Enforcement of the National Minimum Wage
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is responsible for minimum wage compliance and enforcement policy and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) enforces the National Minimum Wage Act on behalf of BEIS.
Workers can complain about underpayment and seek redress by contacting HMRC or Acas:
Use the pay and work rights complaint form on GOV.UK.
Call the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100.
