Tudor Employment Agency Limited in Walsall, Eurotherm Limited from Telford and Anthony John Salons Limited in Lichfield were named among 202 employers from across the country which failed to pay workers more than £5 million.

The 202 employers were found to have breached National Minimum Wage (NMW) law, leaving around 63,000 workers out of pocket.

Tudor Employment was found to have failed to pay £22,606.96 to 930 workers, Eurotherm had failed to pay £639.67 to seven workers and Anthony John Salons Limited had failed to pay £615.46 to one worker.

These companies range from major high street brands to small businesses and sole traders and the government said it was a clear message that no employer is exempt from paying their workers the statutory minimum wage.
