star this property answer text <p>The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has improved its compliance and reporting processes, resulting in the recent suspension of six countries for non-compliance and a further six countries placed on its watch-list. Last week, WADA's Foundation Board increased its scope to conduct internal investigations and strengthen its whistleblowing process. WADA President Craig Reedie's statement that values-based education is the best weapon for clean sport is a view shared by UK Anti-Doping and implemented through its successful 100% Me education programme.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We understand the pressures faced by small business owners. This year we launched Fit for Work. While primarily aimed at helping employers with employees who are facing long term sickness absence, the self-employed can access free, impartial work related health advice through the advice element of the scheme. Fit for Work is a free service which provides both a supportive occupational health assessment and general health and work advice to employees, employers and General Practitioners (GPs), to help individuals stay in or return to work.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to making it easier for small business owners to run their business. We are helping small businesses access the finance they need to startup and grow with British Business Bank programmes already supporting £2.3 billion of finance to 40,000 smaller businesses. Small businesses have less regulation to follow, with savings to businesses of £10bn of red tape in the last Parliament, and have better access to business advice and support through GREATbusiness.gov.uk. The ‘My Business Support Tool’ helps businesses find the support they need quickly, and businesses can speak to or webchat with a helpline adviser direct using our Business Support helpline. Going forward, we have announced a new Small Business Commissioner to help small businesses to settle disputes and challenge unfair payment terms.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The National Minimum Wage naming and shaming scheme represents the end point of civil sanctions against employers who fail to pay at least the appropriate rate of minimum wage to their workers. Where there is evidence that an offence has been committed the case will always be considered for criminal investigation which may in turn result in prosecutions. But criminal investigations are reserved for the most serious cases of non-compliance.</p><p> </p><p>Our number one priority is getting workers the money they are owed and the civil route is more successful in achieving this. Criminal investigations by HM Revenue &amp; Customs and prosecutions by the Crown Prosecution Service will not necessarily result in arrears of wages being paid back to the workers. This would require further civil prosecutions following the Courts’ ruling.</p><p> </p><p>Under the civil route, employers are not only faced with reputational consequences, but also face a financial penalty for breaking the law.</p><p> </p>
