National Minimum Wage – Prosecutions (R011985)
Thank you for your e-mail of 16 December 2015 in which you requested the following information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA): “how many prosecutions have there been for paying below the National Minimum Wage in Scotland in each of the last five years.
Please give details of any prosecutions including the date, the location, the number of people involved, and the company.
Please can you provide this information in electronic form.”
COPFS are only able to consider taking court proceedings in relation to reports we receive. I can advise that there have been no charges of this type reported to COPFS in the last five years.
