Negligent employers and in-work benefits

17 January 2017

An interesting article from Unpaid Britain discusses some of the intended and unintended consequences of those employers who do not adhere to employment rights legislation.

The article looks at some of the ways in which employers’ actions, whether motivated by a desire to maximise profit, avoid scrutiny from HMRC or to circumvent National Minimum Wage legislation, can result in a knock-on effect which reduces or stops a worker’s benefit income and puts their quality of life, home and health at risk.

Topics covered are:

  • Not supplying payslips
  • Late payment of wages
  • Zero Hours contracts
  • Deliberately avoiding liability for statutory payments.
