To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, with reference to the Answer of 29 January 2015 to Question 221930, how many of the employers issued with a Notice of Underpayment of the National Minimum Wage have been named under the Department's revised national minimum wage naming and shaming scheme; how many employers have been issued with such a notice since 29 January 2015; and how many of those employers have been named under that scheme.
13 July 2015
Since 1 October 2013, 210 employers have been named under the National Minimum Wage naming scheme.
HMRC has issued 333 Notices of Underpayment (NoUs) since 29 January 2015. Of these, 274 were for investigations that commenced on or after 1 October 2013 and are therefore eligible for naming under the new scheme.
Since 29 January 2015, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has named 118 employers, of which 4 employers were issued an NoU after that date. The Department expects to name more employers shortly.
