Subway failed to pay staff, says BIS report

Sandwich retailer Subway has appeared in a new report naming and shaming firms who have failed to pay all staff the minimum wage.

Released by the department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the report claimed Subway branches in Morden, Barbican, Richmond and Twickenham failed to pay 10 workers £2,466.77. The company was 29th worst in the lists of 115 companies.

Since the scheme was introduced in October 2013, 400 employers have been named by the BIS, with total arrears of over £1.2m and total penalties issued of more than £513,000.

Revealing the list, business minister Nick Boles said: “Employers that fail to pay the minimum wage hurt the living standards of the lowest paid and their families.

“As a one nation government on the side of working people we are determined that everyone who is entitled to the National Minimum Wage receives it.”

On October 1, 2015, the National Minimum Wage (NMW) rose to £6.70. Next April also sees the launch of the National Living Wage, which will see workers over 25 receive a minimum of £7.20 per hour.

British Baker has approached Subway for comment and is waiting for a response.
