Norman Lamb, Minister for Employment Relations, has publicly named Rita Patel, a Leicester hair and beauty salon owner, for failing to pay GBP3,361.22 in national minimum wage (NMW) to a former worker following an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). This resulted in HMRC enforcing the debt through the courts. The Government argues that bad publicity is an effective way of deterring employers who would otherwise be tempted not to pay the NMW.
