Christmas boost for low-paid workers £3m more for minimum wage enforcement
The vast array of temporary and part-time employees taken on to cover the busy Christmas period are today reminded of their right to be paid at least the national minimum wage.
Shops, bars, hotels, restaurants and courier services all see a surge in the number of employees in December. Other areas taking on temporary staff include the fitness and security sectors.
Now complaints about non-payment of the minimum wage are even easier over the Christmas holiday period, thanks to a new online service launched this month.
