Local businesses ‘named and shamed’ for underpaying staff

1 Mins read

The list has been published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

More than 350 employers have been named and shamed in the largest ever list of national minimum and living wage offenders.

Locally, the list includes McHenry’s Central Bar Ltd, Ballycastle, which failed to pay £330.24 to one worker and Charmaine V Doherty, trading as Causeway Coach Hire, Ballymoney, which failed to pay £1,307.50 to 10 workers.

Gemma McHenry, of McHenry’s Central Bar Ltd, said: “It was a genuine mistake of four pence an hour which arose from her changing age.” She stressed that the discrepancy was “not on purpose” and it was rectified. “I know there are people out there who do not treat their staff very well but we are not in that category,” she added.

No-one from Causeway Coach Hire was available for comment.
