The Government is committed to fair pay by ensuring workers are paid at least the National Minimum Wage (NMW).

Migrant workers who work in the UK are entitled to the NMW rate relevant to their age. Anyone concerned about underpayment of the NMW should call Acas’s confidential helpline on 0300 123 1100 or visit http://www.acas.org.uk/nmw. HMRC will look into every complaint it receives.
