star this property answer text <p>As Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills, I work with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on the annual remit for the Low Pay Commission (LPC), who are responsible for making recommendations to the government about minimum rates of pay including the Apprenticeship Minimum Wage.</p><p>The government implemented in full the LPC’s 2019 recommendations. These included an apprentice rate as well as taking into account the long-term benefits that apprentices derive from training, the needs of employers and individual sectors and wider labour market pressures.</p><p>The current Apprentice National Minimum Wage rate rose to £3.90 per hour in April 2019, up from £3.70 per hour. This is a 5.4% increase and the apprentice rate is now at a record high in nominal and real terms. The LPC estimate that this rise will benefit up to 36,000 apprentices.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Enforcement of all minimum wages, including the National Minimum Wage (NMW) for apprentices, is the responsibility of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC).</p><p>In the period 2017 to 2018, HMRC identified a record £15.6 million in total arrears owed to 200,000 workers who were underpaid the minimum wages and issued £14 million in penalties. HMRC continues to investigate 100% of complaints received from workers in respect of minimum wage law.</p><p>The government’s naming scheme, which was introduced in 2013, provides HMRC with the power to publicly name employers who fail to pay minimum wages. 1,900 businesses have already been named. Between them, these businesses owed workers total arrears of more than £11 million. Apprentices are distinguished separately.</p><p>Each new apprentice on a government-funded apprenticeship receives a letter from the Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills which sets out what they can expect from their apprenticeship. This letter includes information on apprentices’ entitlement to the NMW.</p><p>The Education and Skills Funding Agency’s Find an Apprenticeship service also has built-in automated checks to ensure that no apprenticeship vacancy can be advertised with a wage rate below the NMW level. An employer would not be able to submit a vacancy to Find an Apprenticeship until the NMW requirements are met.</p><p> </p>
