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

unstar this property answer text <p>Through the Good Work Plan, published in December 2018, the Government has committed to upgrading workers’ rights and protecting the most vulnerable workers. This represents the biggest upgrade to workers’ rights in over 20 years. The Government has considered all representations made to it about the Swedish derogation and is committed to its repeal. Secondary legislation repealing the Swedish Derogation has already been approved by the House of Commons’ Seventh Delegated Legislation Committee on 6 March 2019. Subject to approval from the House of Lords, from April 2020 all agency workers will be entitled to the same pay as permanent staff after 12 weeks in an assignment. This timeframe allows businesses to realign their contractual arrangements, both with their workers and the end hirers.</p> more like this
