National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage - enforcement

Introduction

Enforcement of the National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage happens in a number of different ways.

This guide describes the offences employers can commit related to the minimum wage, how HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) compliance officers enforce it and how workers can recover underpayments of the minimum wage by making claims in a tribunal or the civil courts.

The guide also covers the policy on naming employers who break minimum wage law.
