National Minimum Wage Penalties and the Pitfalls
National Minimum Wage (NMW) regulations are complex and peppered with technical pitfalls which many businesses and organisation struggle to understand. Penalties for NMW breaches are currently 200% of the identified arrears, as if the penalties alone are not a deterrent, there is also the prospect of being named and shamed by the government, the reputational and financial damage to a business can have significant repercussions.
With HMRC increasing its enforcement activity across many sectors, Jeni will share her extensive experience of working both within HMRC’s NMW team to her current role as head of NMW at EY. She will discuss current NMW risks which are in the spotlight and those which HMRC may be focussing on in the near future.
She is joined by Steven Moran who will provide a great insight into the complex NMW legislation.
