The National Minimum Wage (NMW) rules have been with us for some years and require minimum rates of pay for certain workers. The government is now getting tough with those who do not pay the NMW. From 6 April 2009, a new automatic penalty will be raised on employers where HMRC find NMW arrears. Penalties will range from £100 to £5,000 in addition to any arrears of pay owed to the workers. The most serious cases could lead to a criminal sentence or an unlimited fine. Several changes are also being made to the powers of investigating officers such as the ability to remove NMW records from an employer’s premises. To read more about the NMW rules please see the links below.
