unstar this property answer text <p>HMRC may open an investigation into an employer’s compliance with National Minimum Wage law either following a worker complaint or via proactive risk-based enforcement activity. Where HMRC find no minimum wage arrears are due, they will not take enforcement action such as issuing a Notice of Underpayment and financial penalty.</p><p> </p><p>Where HMRC find that arrears are due to workers they will generally issue a Notice of Underpayment and financial penalty. In some cases, employers may be allowed to carry out self-correction action which ensures that workers are paid the money due to them without the issue of a Notice of Underpayment. Overall, in 2018/19 HMRC found arrears in 45% of cases they closed; this “strike rate” has increased year-on year since the introduction of the National Living Wage in 2016.</p><p> </p><p>This information will be covered in more detail in BEIS’ Minimum Wage Enforcement and Compliance report, which we will publish in due course.</p> more like this
