Clampdown promised on minimum wage evasion

A new HM Revenue and Customs team has been set up to tackle the problem of employers who breach the rules on the national minimum wage. HMRC’s Dynamic Response Team will be tasked with investigating the most high profile and complicated national minimum wage cases. Particular areas to be targeted are those in which employers use migrant labour to undercut competitors by paying employees less than the minimum wage. The team, which will comprise highly-trained specialist officers, is to be backed by £70 million of government funding.
