HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has created a new enforcement team to crack down on employers who are failing to pay their workers the national minimum wage, warn Huntingdon-based accountant Haines Watts.
The Dynamic Response Team will concentrate on the most high-profile and complex cases, including those where employers seek to undercut their competitors by paying migrant workers at less than the statutory rate - a particular concern in many parts of Cambridgeshire.
Specialist officers will work with in conjunction with other Government departments and local authorities to deal with employers who are not complying with the regulations.
Business minister Pat McFadden said: "The Government and HMRC are doing more than ever to make sure that those entitled to the minimum wage are receiving it. Evasion hurts both workers and responsible employers who play by the rules, so we are stepping up our fight against non payment of the minimum wage."
