Last month the minimum wage rose from £6.50 to £6.70 and to accompany this HMRC has released the names of Companies who have been caught not paying the minimum wage. High street chain Monsoon is the biggest name and under payer in this year’s list. Nonetheless companies of every size and industry are on the list meaning it is a more common issue than you might have thought.

The publishing of this list emphasises the importance of ensuring that you pay the minimum wage as being on this list not only attracts a lot of negative publicity it is also accompanied with a hefty fine.
