Unfair Pay amd Being Paid Below the Minimum Wage Claims

It is a legal requirement for your employer to pay you the correct wages. At Lupton Fawcett, we understand how difficult it can be to talk about pay issues with your employers. Therefore, we offer advice and guidance to make the process simple and easy.

Our employment team specialise in employment law for employees and are able to cover many aspects involving wages including:

  • failure to pay;
  • holiday pay discrepancies;
  • statutory sick pay discrepancies;
  • issues involving maternity and paternity pay;
  • failure to pay National Minimum Wage.
  • How we can help

If you have concerns about your pay because, for example, you haven’t been given the right amount of overtime, are not being paid National Minimum Wage or you have questions about maternity or paternity allowance, you should feel comfortable enough to discuss matters with your manager. If this isn’t the case, or you have spoken to your employer and they have refused to pay you correctly, our solicitors can explain the options available and help you make a claim for that which you are entitled.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the NMW enforced?

In recent years, the Government has put a great deal of effort and money into enforcing the NMW.  If you or your business has failed to pay the NMW, the following action may be taken:

  • Taken To Court – Workers can enforce their rights by bringing a claim for unlawful deduction from wages in an Employment Tribunal, or for breach of contract in an Employment Tribunal or the County Court.  However, both types of claims in the County Court require the payment of a court fee.
  • HMRC Investigation  A worker or any third party (including a trade union representative) can complain to HMRC, which will trigger an investigation into the employer’s business.
