NI Businesses Reminded To Pay National Minimum Wage

Five Northern Ireland businesses have been named and shamed for failing to pay the national minimum wage

The national minimum wage (NMW) naming scheme came into force in October 2013.

As part of this scheme, the government has recently named 70 employers from across the UK who have failed to pay the NMW, including five employers from Northern Ireland.

These 70 employers have been charged financial penalties totalling over £70,000.

This brings the total to 162 employers that have been named and shamed since the scheme began.

Reminder for employers

Naming and shaming provides a clear reminder to employers who ignore the rules that they will face reputational consequences as well as financial penalties if they do not pay the NMW.
