The government has published a list of 25 employers who failed to pay the National Minimum Wage (NMW) to their employees.
The publication by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is part of new measures introduced in October 2013 that allows the 'naming and shaming' of offenders. In February, a list of five businesses were the first to make the list.
Collectively, the 25 UK-based employers owe more than £43,000 in arrears to workers, and will have to pay £21,000 in penalties.
Under the new measures, employers that fail to pay workers the NMW also face new penalties of up to £20,000, four times higher than before.
